A Human resource (HR) head of a Gurugram based automobile company, Mitsuba Sical India Pvt Ltd, was shot in the back by two motorcycle-borne assailants on Thursday morning.
The victim, Dinesh Kumar Sharma, immediately informed one of his colleagues who rushed him to a private hospital in Manesar. His brother, Mahesh Kumar said that he is out of danger.
Gurugram police commissioner Sandeep Khirwar said that they have rounded up one person and will crack the case soon.
Dinesh has been working with the Japanese company for the last 7.5 years.
On Wednesday morning, he had left home around 7:30am and when he was just half a kilometers away from his company, two men tried to intercept his car.
However, he accelerated his car fearing some untoward incident.
Meanwhile the pillion rider took out a pistol and shot at him injuring his back. The assailants then fled from the spot.
“Sir drove his car till the company and informed me immediately”, Surinder Kumar Sharma, one of the company’s employee said.
“My brother was conscious when he was shot and immediately called Sharma and informed him about the incident. He rushed him to a private hospital in Manesar and informed us”, said Mahesh.
Dinesh alleged that the intention of the assailants was to kill him but he had a narrow escape.
The victim stated in his complaint that he suspected Joginder Singh, a resident of village Rathiwas, Manesar, to be behind the attack. He was a trainee engineer in his company and was fired due to indiscipline last month.
The victim told the police that he had received several threats by unknown people to reinstate him but had not taken the matter seriously. On Wednesday evening he received a call from one Dayachand master, who called him to Bilaspur crossing for an urgent meeting. When the victim reached there, he saw ten people were waiting for him, including Joginder Singh.
“They threatened my brother of dire consequences and asked him to reinstate Singh. However, he refused to relent and returned home. On Wednesday morning, Singh along with another youth shot at him”, Mahesh said.
Meanwhile, Bilaspur police has registered a case under section 307 (Attempt to Murder), 506 (Threatening for life) and Arms Act.
This is not the first case when employees have attacked their seniors in Haryana. Earlier on July 18, 2012, a mob of workers had gone on a rampage at Maruti Suzuki plant in Manesar and set fire to the building. 51-year-old Awanish Kumar Dev, general manager (human resources) of Maruti Suzuki, was burnt to death in that attack and 100 others, including two Japanese officials, were injured. 31 workers were convicted in the case and 117 were acquitted on March 10, 2017.
