Three arrested for assaulting planning director of private company


The SHO added that the kidnapping and assault of the company’s associate vice president at Sector 30 on March 25 is also linked to this case.

Three men were arrested at Iffco Chown on Sunday for allegedly assaulting a private company planning official after he intercepted his car in Gurugram Sector 7 on March 30, police said on Tuesday.

Police said the victim, who works at Godrej Properties Limited, suffered multiple injuries in the assault. Based on his complaint, police filed an FIR at the New Colony Police Station.

New Settlement Police Station Officer Inspector Rajesh Kumar said the arrested suspects were identified as Naveen alias Ballu (21) from Bhimgarh Kheri in Sector 5, Manish alias Fighter (25) from Prem Nagar in Sector 12 and Naveen aka Definitive (21) from Patli Village in Farrukh Nagar.

The suspects were taken into custody for a day. Kumar said they were taken into custody on Tuesday.

The SHO added that the kidnapping and assault of the company’s associate vice president at Sector 30 on March 25 is also linked to this case.

Police said Ballu’s brother and a friend of his got bids for the supply of water and land at a company construction site. Police said the job was given to another contractor, because of which they were upset and therefore assaulted the two associates. Police say several other suspects involved in the case are currently at large.

The company’s corporate communications team received a text message for comment on the matter, but did not respond until late at night.
