Then after that, arrogance, push and shove… all this happens.”
Sonu said that “I was asked for a selfie. On refusing, the person in front caught me. Later it came to be known that he is Swapnil Faterpekar, son of MLA Prakash Faterpekar. To save me, my close friend Hari Prasad came in between. Then he pushed Hari, after which he pushed me. Due to this I fell down. When Rabbani came to save me, he was also pushed. He has a narrow escape, otherwise he would have been seriously hurt. Even his life could have been lost in this. Rabbani’s luck was good that there was no iron below.”
Nigam has filed a complaint against the alleged persons under IPC sections 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 341 (wrongful restraint), and 337 (causing hurt by an act endangering the life or personal safety of others).
