Cops clarify PCR van's vanishing act

The Delhi Police on Sunday rebutted media reports that three people, including a chief security officer of Zynxxx Club in Hilton Hotel, were severely assaulted outside Surya Hotel in the presence of a PCR van early morning on February 13.

Rajesh Kumar, deputy commissioner of police (PCR), insisted that no fight ever took place in the presence of PCR staff and said that the moment they came to know about the incident, they rushed to the spot and chased the assailant vehicle.

“An impression has been created as if the fight was occurring in the presence of a PCR van, but instead of taking legal action against the culprits,PCR van left the spot coyly. The PCR had actually gone to chase the alleged vehicle, but could not apprehend it.

“The same vehicle came back to the spot after six minutes,” Kumar said.
He also said that the PCR staff then rushed the victims identified as Bhupendra Nagar, Vinod and Sharad to hospital.

“There was no dereliction of duty what-so-ever on the part of PCR staff. They acted as per their brief and demand of the situation,” Kumar added. The matter was inquired into detail by Kumar in the presence of senior police officials of local police.

The DCP also personally went to the spot, looked at the CCTV footage and examined all the witnesses who were present at the time of incident. Eight bouncers were earlier arrested over the incident from various parts of Delhi.

The arrested bouncers, all in their late twenties, were identified as Rocky, the main accused, Anuj, Sandeep, Boby, Manander, Sunder Pal, Devender and Satyawan Awana. They were arrested in simultaneous raids at various places by eight police teams on Friday night.

Five of them were apprehended from a farm house in south Delhi and the rest from Sangam Vihar, Greater Kailash and Noida.
