KOLKATA: A young tour operator — travelling to Kolkata from his Khardah residence around 12.05am on Tuesday — became a victim of road rage on the busy BT Road near Sinthi More.
The 21-year-old victim — Satyam Dey — would have ended up with serious injuries after being assaulted and robbed by five men, some locals chased the attackers, alerted cops on patrol and got one of the accused arrested.
Dey, a resident of Patulia in Khardah, was driving his car — a sedan — that also plied as an app cab. He was crossing Sinthi More when the incident occurred. “The sedan was headed from north to south towards Shyambazar when a pickup truck crashed into it. It was being driven in a rash and negligent manner. The truck had come out of KN Dutta Road and hit Dey’s car,” an officer said.
Police said that the accident had left Dey’s car — registered in December 2018 — badly damaged from the rear. “The truck had five to six occupants. After the incident, Dey raised an alarm and parked his car in front of the truck to prevent it from escaping. He then came out to speak to the driver. However, all the occupants of the truck got off and attacked Dey,” he said.
“They assaulted him. They even robbed Dey of one gold chain and some cash. Some of the attackers even pulled out a rod from the truck and used it to bash Dey’s car,” a cop said.
More than ten minutes later, some people who were nearby heard the commotion and realized that Dey was being assaulted. Six to seven shopkeepers and other truckers chased the suspects. But most of them managed to flee in the pickup truck. The driver, however, was caught by the locals.
“The accused, Satish Babar (27), a resident of Mondalpara in Sinthi, was arrested after locals handed him over to us. We are trying to find the others,” said an investigating officer of Cossipore police that has registered the case.
Among the sections slapped under the Indian Penal Code are 279 (rash driving), 427 (mischief causing damage), 341 (wrongful restraint), 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 379 (theft) and 114 (abettor present when incident took place).
