Mumbai Driver Beaten With Belts Over Parking Spot


Scarcely seven days after a Nashik business person passed on after he was diverted from a bridge  for condemning speeding bikers, a gathering of young fellows thrashed a driver with leather belts inside a Bandra private society since he professedly solicited one from them not to stop before the entryway.

On Saturday evening, Sagar Gawli (40) was holding up in the car below his employer Faiyaz Virani’s working in Sarkar Plaza, Bandra West, when he detected a young fellow stop his bike just outside the door of the building and block the entry. At the point when Gawli moved toward the man and asked that he park his vehicle somewhere else, the man broke into a contention. In the following battle, the man slapped him. Gawli hit him back, yet was caught off guard when two of his companions joined the fight.

The two men, equipped with leather belts, were caught on CCTV cameras whipping Gawli. “On hearing the hullabaloo, I watched out of the window and saw a couple of young men beat up my driver hardheartedly. I rushed first floor and attempted to intercede. At the point when that did not help, I called the police control room and requested for help. Be that as it may, when the Bandra police reached at the spot, the men had fled,” said Virani, who is additionally chairman of the building.

Virani surged Gawli to Bhabha Hospital. “He needed to get six to seven stitches to the head. His eye is swollen and he has been advised to rest for at least seven days,” said Virani.

As indicated by Virani, the trio appeared as though they were college students. “I can hardly imagine how youngsters can be violent to the point that they would whip some individual twice their age.”

The Bandra police enrolled a FIR and are watchful for the blamed.
