The incident took place ahead of 'International Workers' Day'.
Contrary to the general practice of honouring working class on this day, one video footage has come out in which a resident of Amrapali Village, a high-rise in Nyay Khand 2, can be seen slapping a member working with the maintenance department of the society following an argument over the renovation of his newly-bought flat. The incident took place on Tuesday.
The resident had bought a flat on the 8th floor in April this year. He was forcing the maintenance manager to get the renovation done in his flat by the Apartment Owners' Association (AOA).
"When maintenance manager objected to his demand and clarified that renovation of a resident's property doesn't come under the purview of AOA, the resident became violent and started abusing the manager and later, slapped him," told Maheshwaran Nair, secretary of the RWA of the society.
Later, the staff called the police and the issue was resolved amicably after the resident apologised AOA office-bearers through an apology letter.
