Kolkata: IT exec thrashed by auto driver

KOLKATA: Members of an autorickshaw union in Dum Dum thrashed an IT govt on Friday night, causing a head damage that required stitches, after the person protested against probably the most drivers for dashing into him the former morning. Following a grievance, two persons had been arrested and charged with voluntarily causing grievous hurt, prison intimidation and illegal assembly to devote offence.

Abhijit Biswas, 47, who lives in Dum Dum Cantonment, changes two automobiles day by day to succeed in Dum Dum Metro station, from the place he travels to Dalhousie. Around 10.40am on Thursday, he had just alighted from the Cantonment-Nagerbazar auto and was paying the motive force when another auto ran into him while reversing. Though he wasn’t significantly injured, he dropped his cell phone. A heated exchange ensued between him and the motive force. A starter who manages the automobile queues joined the motive force and proceeded to bother Biswas.


Lawlessness turns out to have taken over the sector, even if the three-wheelers don't seem to be ferrying passengers. Cops want to have a look at incidents like this extra closely.

“They pushed me around for talking up. I had a just right thoughts of going to the police, but I left since I was getting late for place of job and told myself I might file the subject later. When I returned from work that night, and once more when I was going to place of job the next day, I didn’t see either the starter or the motive force. When I in any case noticed them on the Dum Dum Cantonment auto union refuge on Friday night, I confronted them and asked them to accompany me to the police station. They reacted with violence. A bearded guy joined the duo and the three began to beat me up. I was kicked, punched and pushed to the bottom. Thereafter, I was hit with one thing. I almost fell unconscious. Locals rescued me and took me to Dum Dum Municipal Hospital,” Biswas recounted.

Biswas’s wife took him to a private medical institution the place he gained five stitches for a gash at the head. After being discharged, Biswas filed a grievance with Dum Dum police.

“I will no longer let those rogues get away. Of route I think afraid, no longer only for me, but for other family members as neatly. But I will no longer take this lying down,” he said.

Though the twist of fate on Thrusday morning and the attack the following night happened in public view, auto union member Subir Das said the passenger was at fault in each instances. “The auto driving force who was reversing tried to warn him, but the passenger had earphones on and couldn’t pay attention. The auto barely touched him and he flared up, the use of foul phrases. Naturally, the motive force retaliated. On Friday night, he was under the influence of alcohol when he stormed in and tried to take hold of the motive force through his collar. When we tried to forestall him, he by chance fell down and injured his head,” Das defined.

Biswas rubbished the arguments. “I don’t have earphones. Moreover, being a blood sugar affected person, I don’t drink alcohol. In any case, neither are causes to justify the twist of fate or the attack,” he said.

“The accused — driving force Prasanta Roy and Biswajit Pal — will probably be produced in Barrackpore court docket,” said Ananda Roy, Barrackpore Commmissionerate DCP zone II.
