‘Drunk’ men assault colony residents, cop
Neeraj Kumar, a resident of Sonepat, was arrested from the spot. Police are looking for the others.
In his statement to police, the brother said he was driving in to his colony when four men signalled him to stop the car. When he slowed down, the men banged their fist on the bonnet of the car and asked him to come out.
“As I came out of the car to ask them what was wrong, the accused punched my face. Before I could react, three of them held my hands and one of them started to punch me. When my sister came out of the car to rescue me, they slapped her too,” he told police.
After the duo cried for help, people gathered and overpowered the men. “The moment the crowd came, me and my sister sat in the car and left,” the complaint said.
In the meantime, the beat constable, Mohit, reached the spot. Eyewitnesses told police that Kumar also got into a scuffle with a passerby. The beat constable, who tried to intervene, was also beaten up by the accused.
One of the men, an eyewitness told police, picked a board lying on the roadside and smashed it on the head of the constable.
