In the video, Singh purportedly dares the guards to call the cops
Noida: A Lotus Boulevard resident, who was assaulted by a group of guards in the housing society last week, can be seen in a new video purportedly daring them to call the cops. This is minutes after he allegedly slaps one of them, according to another video.
In a 48-second clip, the guards, led by security in-charge Amaresh Rai, can be purportedly seen asking SK Singh, the resident, how he could slap one them. “Do you hit like this? Being a resident, you are doing something like this?” a guard asks Singh.
When one of them says he will call police, Singh purportedly replies, “Call the police… it is a good thing. You call the police and I will show you in the next five minutes,” he can be heard saying while fiddling with his phone.
CISS Bureau, the security agency, has alleged that Singh, a businessman, is an influential person and demanded that the police examine his call records. They have said they will move court if an FIR against Singh is not lodged. “Did he call some influential resident or someone in the police? His call records should be probed,” said Sandeep Kumar, regional manager in the agency.
Singh, however, raised questions on the contents of the video. “The video is malicious. I have not been part of any such video. I don’t care what they are doing,” he said, before disconnecting the call.
Kumar said they had gone to the Sector 39 police station to lodge a complaint against Singh, but were not given any receipt. “This means they did not lodge a separate FIR. We have sent a copy of the complaint to the office of the police commissioner via speed post. We will approach the court, if need be,” he added.
Additional DCP Ranvijay Singh clarified they would not lodge a separate FIR but incorporate the complaint with the existing FIR.
