In a shocking incident, a man and his son were brutally assaulted by a group of youth after they asked them to follow COVID guidelines and wear their masks. The incident took place in the New Colony area of Gurugram district in Haryana on Wednesday.
The victims have been identified as Dharmendra Dass and his son Kush. The two had gone to a bakery near their residence when the incident took place.
“As I told them to put on their mask, they started abusing us. Later, they called other men to the spot who were armed with the sticks and all of a sudden they started beating us for an advice which would help them in times of coronavirus pandemic,” the report quoted from Dharmendra’s complaint to police.
Based on the victim’s complaint, an FIR was filed against unidentified men under Sections 147 (rioting), 149 (unlawful assembly), 323 (voluntary causing hurt), and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) on Thursday.
