KANPUR: A video showing a man with gun chasing a person and hurling abuses went viral on social media on Saturday. The incident occurred in Kanpur’s Sanigawan area of Chakeri when it was recorded by some passer by.
Later, the police claimed that the man, identified as Ashutosh Pathak of Babhanagar, was booked and later arrested. According to eyewitnesses, Ashutosh Pathak arrived at the Sanigwan post-office in Chakeri on Saturday afternoon and pointed gun at assistant post-master Vishal Kumar Gupta. When Vishal, sensing trouble, ran for cover, Ashutosh chased him.
The victim thereafter lodged a complaint against the accused at the Chakeri police station.
Vishal Kumar Gupta, native of Kharauni village in Ballia, worked as assistant branch postmaster in Sanigawan Post Office. He lives on rent in Sainik Vihar Colony of Sanigawan.
Vishal said that he was working in the post office on Saturday afternoon when Ashutosh called him but he couldn’t take his call because of his busy schedule. After some time Ashutosh reached his office and started abusing Gupta for not picking up his call. On objecting to his behaviour, the accused whipped out a firearm and started chasing him.
Some people intervened and pacified the matter. Later the accused left threatening to kill Vishal. Some people present there recorded the incident and posted it on social media.
Chakeri police station in-charge Shailendra Singh said that the gun possessed by the accused is a licensed one. “We have arrested the accused under relevant sections of IPC. Further investigations are underway,” Sing added.
