FIRs filed as road rage results in violence

In yet another road rage incident reported from the city, a businessman in west Delhi’s Punjabi Bagh was purportedly thrashed and his vehicle smashed by four youths on Sunday night.

The other party, comprising of four youths, has registered a counter FIR against the businessman alleging that he beat them up, a police officer said. No arrests have been made so far, the officer added.

Praveen Bindal has his own business and lives with his family in Punjabi Bagh’s Madan Park. The other party lives in the same locality.

The fight took place on Sunday night while Bindal was near his recently-purchased Swift Dzire car parked outside his house. “There was a wedding procession passing by at that time. Because of less space on the road, a car with four youths inside hit Bindal’s car. An argument between Bindal and those youths ensued over this,” the officer told Deccan Herald.

Bindal’s wife Kanchan said the youths soon resorted to violence as they began thrashing him. “They called some of their friends and began thrashing my husband with sticks. They fractured his leg by ramming into it with their car,” she alleged.

Her brother-in-law Sunil alleged that the youths even tried to run over Bindal. “They then smashed our car with rods, sticks and stones,” said Sunil. Bindal’s Swift car was severely damaged in the attack and a large stone was also found inside the car.

Police were informed and Bindal rushed to a nearby hospital where he is undergoing treatment. Police, meanwhile, said that three men from the other side too were admitted to the hospital claiming they were thrashed by Bindal. “Those three suffered simple injuries, the officer said. Barring a side view mirror, their car stayed undamaged,” said the officer.

Police said they are verifying the contradictory claims by both the parties and would make arrests after there is clarity as to who was at fault.
