Drunk men attack cop for denying parking

Gruesome act

Chander Vijay Singh, 39, posted at the Sarojini Nagar Police Station in south Delhi, had confronted the two drunk men inside the car parked at a market in Netaji Nagar around 10:15 pm, when market was closed on Monday, according to the police.

“I am a Netaji Nagar beat constable and was on my way to Sarojini Nagar police station when I noticed the two men sitting inside a car at Netaji market on  Monday night. I objected to their parking and asked them to leave as it was late and the market was closed for the day. They complied and left,” Singh said.

After the Santro car left, Singh rode his motorcycle towards the police station. As he reached Brigadier Hoshiar Singh Marg, the car rammed into his bike from behind.
The impact sent Singh sliding for nearly 20 feet. The drunk men then engaged in an argument with Singh. One of them started to hit the policeman’s head with a hammer, according to an officer.

Local residents tried to rescue Singh, but one of the drunk men fired with his gun at a man who tried to help the policeman.

Bullet wound

The man, who was later identified as Rajesh Sharma, 47, a resident of Sarojini Nagar, sustained bullet wound. The assailants then fled the spot, brandishing the gun.
The crowd rushed Sharma to All India Institute of Medical Sciences Trauma Centre in a private vehicle. Singh was taken to hospital by a CATS ambulance.

Singh had received multiple injuries and has a plastered right hand, while Sharma, treated for firearm injury, is said to be in a critical condition.

“The gruesome attack has left me and Sharma seriously injured. I can identify the men behind the attack if they are brought in front of me,” Singh added.

A case has been registered against the unidentified suspects and hunt is on to nab them, said the officer.

The hammer with which Singh had been attacked was recovered by the police later.
