A 51-year-old constable, posted at Secretariat Security Force in Ministry of Home Affairs, was allegedly assaulted by two Ministry of Defence (MoD) employees in an ATM queue, police said today.
The incident took place on January 12 when Raj Kumar, constable with Secretariat Security Force, Ministry of Home Affairs had gone to an ATM in North Block to withdraw money, they said.
When he tried to withdraw the ATM, the machine did not accept his card due to some technical glitch, police said.
The two men allegedly lost temper while standing in the queue and despite Kumar telling them it was not his fault that the machine was not working properly, they abused him and hit him, breaking his two teeth, they said.
Seeing the commotion, the CISF guard closed the gates and the two men were held. When they showed their ID cards, it was found that they are employed with Ministry of Defence, police said.
Further investigation is underway in the matter, police added.
