2 security guards ‘beaten to death’ in Delhi

New Delhi: Health workers wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) suits bring the body of a patient who succumbed to COVID-19 at Nigambodh Ghat in New Delhi .

New Delhi, (Asian independent)¬†Two security guards were allegedly beaten up with canes by a group of unidentified miscreants in national capital’s Narela area, the police said on Sunday.

“The said incident took place in the wee hours of Sunday. The two guards succumbed to their injuries in the hospital where they were undergoing treatment,” police officials said.

The two deceased guards — Amit (22) and Sunil (24) were on night duty when the alleged incident took place.

They were thrashed on the second floor of a building by a group of men. Upon hearing the noise, other guards also reached at the spot but it was too late as the miscreants managed to escape from the scene of the crime.

The two victims were immediately rushed to MV hospital from where they were referred to BSA hospital where they succumbed to injuries while undergoing treatment, said Gaurav Sharma, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer-North).

Sharma also said that the intention of miscreants was not to kill as the victims did not sustain any apparent injury on head and other vital parts of the body, but they did have fractures in their limbs.

A case has been registered and the investigation in the matter is underway along with efforts to nab the culprits.

Preliminary probe has suggested the involvement of known persons including those who were deployed at the same building, however, the cops aren’t ruling out the involvement of outsiders.
