A midnight tiff between a truck driver and police at Subhash Chowk in Gurgaon led to a traffic snarl, affecting hundreds of commuters on Sohna Road.
The matter was, however, resolved after about an hour when the residents of Uniworld Gardens, which is just 600 m from the chowk, called a PCR van.
Sushil Kumar, an eyewitness, said, ‘I had just fallen asleep but was woken up from all the noise outside. I got out the society and saw a truck driver bleeding profusely.”
The driver was allegedly beaten up by the police. Later, other truck-and-cab drivers blocked the entire stretch leading to Uniworld Gardens.
Speaking to City Spidey, Ritika Oberoi, another resident of Uniworld Gardens, recalled, “Being a Friday, many families were out at that hour. The blocked vehicles restricted their entry to the condominium. A few residents went outside to try and reason with the mob, but they had turned violent by then.”
A resident, requesting anonymity, said, “We had gone out for dinner. We reached Sohna Road to see a huge traffic jam — we were quite shocked. I waited for almost half an hour inside the car. Then, I just left my car in the middle of the traffic and went to drop my family inside the condominium walking.”
City Spidey contacted Sadar station house officer Vijay Kumar, but he denied knowledge of any such incident. He said, “I am not aware of any such incident, hence I cannot comment.”
