Migrant workers assaulted, 8 arrested

GURUGRAM: Eight persons were arrested on Thursday for allegedly thrashing migrant workers in Aliyar village and accusing them of being infected by coronavirus.
According to police, the village panchayat has formed a committee to distribute ration, enforce lockdown and discourage people from going out of the house without any reason. The committee was also regulating the operation of shops.
On Wednesday, the committee members were taking a round when they found a shop open. “They asked the shopkeeper to operate during a stipulated time but after a while some locals living in the adjacent building passed some comments which lead to an argument,” a police officer said.
The committee members barged inside the building and thrashed the occupants, injuring one of them severely on the head. He was taken to Rockland Hospital in Manesar from where he was referred to Paras Hospital.
The injured youth, Krishan Kumar (20), who works with an automobile manufacturing company, told police that on Wednesday, he along with his roommates was having lunch when around 20-25 people armed with sticks barged into the premises. “We did not pass any comment. They started beating us and hurled abuses,” said Krishan.
ACP (crime) Preet Pal told TOI that on Thursday eight persons were arrested on the charges and an investigation is underway.
