The Delhi Police on Monday booked a group of persons from Nigeria for allegedly creating a ruckus inside a nursing home in south Delhi’s Saket area. The police have recovered four footages from the CCTV cameras installed in and around the nursing home, in which their alleged act was captured. A few of them were seen carrying cleavers and rods in their hands.
Additional Deputy Commissioner (south) Chinmoy Biswal said that a case under Section 147, 148, 149, 323, 427, 452 of IPC has been registered at Saket Police station and teams have been constituted to nab the accused persons.
The incident happened on October 28 at about 4 am. “A PCR call was made at 4.30 am by a staff member of Neelu Angel Nursing Home located at J Block in Saket. On reaching the spot it was found that the furniture at the reception and inside the laboratory was damaged,” said a police officer.
The staff member identified as Lairab, who works at the front office in the nursing home, told the police that at least three Nigerian persons had come for treatment and enquired about the charges. However, after hearing the charges they told the staff that the hospital is quite expensive and they will visit some other hospital.
“They were accompanied by a dozen of other Nigerians who were standing outside the hospital. After some time one Nigerian person came in an auto and as the first group saw him all of them became aggressive and ran towards him. He ran inside the hospital to save himself,” said the officer.
The entire group ran after him and beat him inside the hospital. They also damaged the furniture and the laboratory of the hospital. After this, the entire group including the injured fled away, before the police arrived, added the officer.
Police sources said that there was a fight between the two parties at Eboma Kitchen near Mehrauli Church and few people were injured there. “This fight at the hospital happened in continuation to the fight which took place at Mehrauli,” said the source. Police said that they have detained some persons in connection with the matter.
