The complainant in the case, Mukhtiar Singh told the police that he runs a cigarette vend in Sector 82. He said that on the intervening night of October 21/22, one of the accused Bhupinder Singh who works at a car workshop nearby came to his shop and demanded a cigarette from him.

“I refused to give the cigarette to Bhupinder as he already had to pay me Rs 500 which were pending. At this, Bhupinder got angry and started arguing with me. He also assaulted me and on seeing that my son Prince, who ran a vend near mine, came to my rescue. My son-in-law Abhay Kumar was also with Prince,” said Mukhtiar Singh in his complaint.

He further said that following Prince’s intervention, Bhupinder left the spot and after sometime, returned with his accomplice Rinku Singh- they both assaulted Mukhtiar and Prince.
