GURUGRAM – A Muslim doctor was allegedly thrashed by a group of men near Ardee City of Gurugram in Haryana on Saturday.
Dr Nurul, who lives near Wazirabad village in Sector 52, was returning after purchasing milk for iftar in his vehicle, when the incident took place.
Nurul, who hails from Uttarakhand, said two men came in a white car and started abusing him without any reason.
When he told them that they were on the wrong side of the road, the duo called 8-9 other men and brutally flogged him.
“I work as a paediatrician with a private hospital and at present preparing for DM-Cardiology exam. I was returning after buying milk for Iftar in my Baleno car. Suddenly, two men came in a white Fortuner and started abusing me without any reason. When I told them that they are on the wrong side of the road, they called 8-9 more men who brutally thrashed me with sticks. I tried calling police but due to injuries I fell unconscious on the road side. Later, the police reached on spot and rushed me to the Civil Hospital,” Nurul was quoted by The Times of India as saying.
The 30-year-old doctor received several injuries on his head, eyes, face and other parts of the body. The doctor heard two of them calling him a “Muslim” and that he should leave the city otherwise riots will begin.
“They thrashed me brutally and I could not understand the reason. I heard two of them saying that I am a Muslim and they should leave otherwise riots will take place. They fled after leaving me on the road side. I don’t know any of them. I want strict action against the accused,” the doctor told TOI.
On Sunday, an FIR was registered against unknown assailants under Sections 147 (rioting), 149 (unlawful assembly) and other relevant sections of Indian Penal Code (IPC) at Sector 53 police station.
Police are yet to arrest the accused, the report said.
