A Noida resident, who has been accused of rape, ran over the security guard of his residential complex in an attempt to evade the police, NDTV reported on Thursday. A closed-circuit television footage of the incident has been widely shared on social media.
The accused man, identified as Neeraj Singh, is a general manager at a private company. The incident took place on Tuesday as the Noida Police were looking for Singh after his co-worker had accused him of raping her.
The CCTV footage showed the guard waving at the car to stop as it approached. However, Singh did not stop and hit the guard with his vehicle. Police officials and other guards were then seen chasing the car.
“Neeraj Singh had been absconding in the rape case for one-and-a-half months,” Noida Sector 113 Station House Officer Sharad Kant Sharma told The Indian Express. “We had located him through informants.”
