“After the incident, the injured person was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment,” said a resident.

“Before heading towards maintenance office, protesters (residents) threatened security guards to leave the society. They were very angry because of daily security issues along with maintenance services issues,” said a resident requesting not to be named.

On Tuesday morning, police were informed about the incident. “After that incident, maintenance services were partially affected for few hours because several things in the office were damaged by the protesters,” resident said.
