As per an NDTV report, the man identified as Rajkumar Gurjar had his vehicle without a FASTag – electronic toll payment system. Gurjar reportedly said that he should be exempted from paying the tax as he was a local. However, he had no documents with him to prove the same.
The toll booth employee, Anurandha Dangi said, “He said he was a local. I said but I don’t know you. Then I went and informed the supervisor. The supervisor asked him if I knew the man. I said no, and then the man got out of his vehicle, abused me and hit me. I also hit him back,” as reported by the news portal.
Following the incident, Anurandha lodged a complaint against the man at the Biaora rural police station. The local police station in-charge Ramkumar Raghuvanshi confirmed the same and said that they have “registered a case under 354, 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Section 3 of Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act”, according to the media reports. The accused is yet to be arrested.
Anurandha Dangi also informed that around seven female employees work at the toll booth but there are no guards to ensure safety. Soon after the CCTV footage went viral on the internet, netizens condemned the act and urged the authorities to take quick action against the accused.
