A repair work of the house was underway. Complainant (Satish Chandra Verma), after parking his motorcycle outside the house, went inside. While they were sitting inside the room and having refreshment, all the applicants abruptly came there with offending tenor armed with revolvers and guns in their hands. They shouted asking Mr. Kalra to send Satish Chandra Verma outside the house, so that they make take revenge of him but complainant did not come outside the house and therefore, accused persons entered in the house. Seeing this, respondent no. 2 sent Krishan Rathor to police station for extending this information of the incident and he confined himself in a room bolting it from inside. This way, he could save his life from assailing attitude of the accused persons.
