In an apparent case of road rage, a 35-year-old South Delhi-based businessman was allegedly threatened by a man, who claimed to be an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) and put a gun to his head near Select City Walk mall in Saket.

The incident took place on May 6 when the businessman, Nitin Saini, was going towards the mall on a two-wheeler. The accused was taking out his BMW car from the parking area when the vehicles collided, police said. The incident was captured by a CCTV camera, but no arrest has been made yet. Sources said Saini has given the car number (HR-10B-0100) to police, but the accused remains at large.

Saini, who has a shop in Panchseel Vihar, told The Indian Express that he was going towards the mall to deliver water jars to some customers. “I was carrying water jars on my Scooty and heading towards the mall. Near the Sai Baba temple, our vehicles collided. The driver of the BMW was taking out his car from the parking area,” he said.

Saini alleged the accused started abusing him. There was a woman passenger in the car, he said. “He got angry after I told him not to abuse me. He came out of his car and started throwing my jars. He pushed me when I objected and threatened me with dire consequences,” he said.

“The accused told me that he was an ACP and would implicate me in a false case. He then made a call to someone and asked him to send some cops to arrest me. He then whipped out a pistol and put the gun to my head,” he alleged.

Police said after threatening the victim, the accused drove away. “Saini later made a call to the police control room. On the basis of his complaint, a case was registered under sections 506-B (threatening), 279 (rash driving) and 336 (act endangering life or personal safety of others) of the Indian Penal Code at Malviya Nagar police station. Saini has provided CCTV footage of the incident, but the accused remains at large,” a police officer said.
