Almost 20 days after a woman was arrested for abusing a security guard at a Noida high-rise society for opening the gate late, another such incident from another society has come to light, with a video of it going viral on social media platforms.
In the video, a woman from Noida’s Cleo County society in Sector 121 can be seen repeatedly slapping a security guard. Sutapa Das, a resident of the society who teaches at a private college, was arrested following a complaint made by the security guard she slapped.
According to police, the security guard did not remove the barricade from the gate when the woman entered the society because her car’s RFID signal did not work. This enraged the woman, and she returned to the main gate after parking her car inside the premises. She then approached the security guard and began arguing with him before abusing and slapping him several times. Sachin Kumar, the security guard, has filed a complaint with the police, who arrested the woman on Sunday evening. Two other security guards can also be seen in the 40-second video, who allegedly begin calling their supervisor for assistance as soon as the incident begins. On Saturday, around 10 a.m., the incident occurred.
“All residents have been informed that cars with RFID can go in and this woman’s car also had the RFID, but it was not working. So, I opened the gate manually for her and informed her that some maintenance work was under process and soon it would be functional. Still, she parked her car and came back to argue about why I couldn’t open the gate sooner, and she started misbehaving and slapping me,” said Sachin Kumar, the complainant.
According to Vijay Kumar, SHO of Phase-3 police station, the police received the information around noon on Saturday when the victim came to the station to file a complaint against the woman.
“Based on the complaint, we have lodged a case and had arrested the woman by the same evening. She is being questioned and further investigation is going on,” he said.
The complaint was filed under sections 151 CrPc and 323 of the IPC (punishment for voluntarily causing harm).
Bhavya Roy, an advocate in Delhi, was also arrested a few days ago after misbehaving with security guards at the Jaypee Wishtown society in Sector-128. In the viral video, she was seen abusing, making suggestive hand gestures, and using language with regional biases.
