Mob Thrash

According to Indiatimes, Dr. Nurul, in a complaint to the police, said, “I work as a paediatrician with a private hospital and at present preparing for DM-Cardiology exam. I was returning after buying milk for Iftar in my Baleno car. Suddenly, two men came in a white Fortuner and started abusing me without any reason. When I told them that they are on the wrong side of the road, they called 8-9 more men who brutally thrashed me with sticks. I tried calling police but due to injuries I fell unconscious on the road side. Later, the police reached on spot and rushed me to the Civil Hospital.”
He further said that the mob left after they came to know about his Muslim identity, fearing riots. He said, “They thrashed me brutally and I could not understand the reason. I heard two of them saying that I am a Muslim and they should leave otherwise riots will take place. They fled after leaving me on the road side. I don’t know any of them. I want strict action against the accused.”

Dr. Nurul has reportedly suffered severe injuries on his head, eyes, face and legs.

An FIR has been registered against unknown accused under sections 147 (rioting), 149 (unlawful assembly), 323 (causing hurt) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of IPC at Sector 53 police station. However, no arrests have been made so far.

“We have registered the case and begun the investigation. Soon those people who were involved in the act will be arrested,” said an official from the Gurugram police.

It is yet unclear whether the mob thrashed the doctor merely because he told them that they were coming in the wrong way or there was a communal angle to it. Only when the accused are caught and interrogated will the doubts be clarified.
