The police have booked a security guard of a housing society for assaulting a 15-year-old boy, Gurman, when he, along with his mother, went to deliver food to a Covid patient on Saturday.
The victim’s mother Imanbeer Kaur, a resident of Sector 94, alleged that the suspect, Harshpreet Singh, a resident of Nanheri village near Kharar, repeatedly hit his son on the face with his bracelet. The child suffered injuries and started bleeding profusely.
The incident took place on Saturday when Gurman and his mother went to TDI Wellington Heights in Sector 117 to deliver free meal to a Covid patient in the society.
The mother-son had been delivering the food at the gate of the housing society for the past two weeks. They came to know that the security guard was not delivering the food to the Covid patient. Instead, he was consuming it himself.
Gurman’s mother complained to the supervisor, following which the guard apologised for the mistake.
When they went to deliver the food yesterday, the security guard abused the duo and assaulted the child.
Balongi SHO Bhagwant Singh Riar said: “A case has been registered against the security guard under Sections 323 and 341 of the IPC. He is yet to be arrested.”
