A senior executive, accused in a rape case, knocked down a security guard of his housing society in Noida with his SUV while trying to evade arrest. The security guard suffered serious injuries in his shoulder and legs, a report in NDTV said.
A CCTV footage of the incident, which happened on Tuesday at a society in Noida sector 120, has gone viral.
The accused, identified as Neeraj Singh, works as general manager at a private company. A case was filed against Singh after a co-worker accused him of raping her.
Noida police was in the look out to arrest Singh but he was absconding since the case was filed, a police officer told NDTV.
On Tuesday evening, police were alerted that Singh was spotted at his home in Noida sector 120’s Amrapali Zodiac housing society. Sensing that police had got a whiff of his whereabouts, Singh tried to flee.
In the video, Singh can be seen driving dangerously as his vehicle emerges from the parking. The SUV then knocks down a security guard who is seen trying to stop the vehicle. Soon, other security guards and a police officer gather around the car. However, the vehicle speeds up and escapes.
