A young man was severely beaten by the petrol pump manager after both had heated argument over filling inadequate petrol. Annoyed by the incident, locals of area including friends and supporters of the victim knocked down the petrol pump.
The incident occurred last night at Reti Stand Petrol Pump. The victim Vijay Salvi, 24, resident of Avrimata Kachhi Basti went to a nearby petrol pump and complained that insufficient petrol was filled in his bike earlier when he came in the morning.
On this, both manager Pushkar Vyas and Vijay started arguing. The heated argument turned violent when Pushkar allegedly attacked Vijay with stick, fracturing his both legs.
Injured Vijay informed his friends and family on phone and soon a group of people reached the petrol pump and started destroying the pump machine. Vijay was admitted in hospital with multiple fractures in both legs.
A cross complaint was lodged by both parties, and the manager Pushkar Vyas was arrested last night.
Today a group of people from Avrimata Kachi Basti staged protest at the petrol pump. Additional police force is deployed in the area to tackle any law and order situation.
