According to a complaint filed by security officer Ashok Kumar, at around 7 a.m., the elevator in Tower 12 jammed on the ground floor and the accused carrier was trapped in the elevator. “He informed me via the intercom installed inside the elevator that he was trapped inside. After that the elevator operator was called and it took about 5 minutes to to open the elevator. However, after getting out of the elevator, Varun Nath started abusing me and also slapped me. He also beat up the elevator operator and threatened to kill us. After that, we gathered and started a protest,” the security guard said.
Following the complaint, an FIR was registered against Varun Nath under Sections 323 (Injury) and 506 (Criminal Intimidation) of the IPC at Sector 50 Police Station.
