Noida lift fracas over pet dog caught on camera- The New Indian Express

By Express News Service

NEW DELHI: Residents of a posh society, including a retired IAS officer, fought over a dog that was being carried in a lift by one of them, police officials said on Tuesday. While no FIR has been lodged in the case, local police personnel had rushed to the society in Sector 108 to look into the matter on Monday night. An alleged footage of the incident which took place around 9pm has also surfaced on social media, showing the two sides engaged in an argument, and the retired bureaucrat being assaulted.

“A woman resident of the society and her minor daughter with her dog were in the lift. When the lift reached the ground floor, an elderly couple, including an ex-IAS officer, wanted to get in, but objected that the dog was in the same lift,” said a police officer.

“An argument broke out between the two parties, and then the woman tried to grab the retired IAS officer’s phone. Reacting to this, the man raised his hand at the woman,” the officer said . The woman asked the daughter to call her father who soon arrived at the spot, and started beating the former IAS officer, police said. A private security officer of the company rushed to the site and saved the former officer even when some more people arrived near the elevator, according to the police.

Officials from the local police station of Sector 39 said they reached out to the company after being notified, and the matter was resolved with both parties reaching a compromise. “Both parties have decided not to take any legal action against each other,” the police officer said.
