Gurgaon Man Arrested For Slapping Security Guard After Being Rescued From Society Lift

A man was arrested in Gurgaon after a complaint was lodged against him for repeatedly slapping the security guard of the high rise apartment he resided in.

The incident happened in The Close North society in Gurgaon’s Sector 50.

The resident, Varun Nath, 39, got stuck in the apartment lift at around 7 in the morning. The lift was stuck on the ground floor due to some technical glitch. According to the security guard, Ashok Kumar, who was assaulted, the lift was stuck for 3-4 minutes before he rushed to the scene with the lift operator, who immediately opened the doors of the lift.

As seen in the CCTV footage, as soon as the lift operator opens the door, Nath drops the bag he is holding onto the floor and begins slapping Kumar. Kumar can be seen stepping backwards with every slap. He can also be seen slapping the lift operator before resuming his assault on Kumar.

A complaint was registered against Varun Nath. In the complaint, Kumar mentions, “I reported for duty at 7:50 pm on Sunday and at the time of the incident, I was stationed at tower 12 of the society. At 7.20 am, a resident, who was coming down was stuck in lift number 1 due to a technical glitch. The lift was stuck on the ground floor for 3-4 minutes. After alighting from the lift, the resident started hurling abuses at me and threatened to kill me… I am scared for my life. I am not at fault, I had informed my senior and the incident has been recorded on CCTV”.
