A security guard of Bhushan Kumar allegedly bashed up and threatened with a gun guards at a housing society in Oshiwara for objecting to trespassing by the owner of music company T Series Thursday evening. Guards at Oberoi Springs said Bhushan, son of Gulshan Kumar, was trying to use the society as a short cut to his office across the road.
Members said Bhushan entered the society in his Rolls Royce at 4 pm. When security guards, including Sanjay Jha, asked him to take the road instead, Kumar's guard allegedly got out of the car and began arguing.
Society residents claimed when Jha tried to stop Kumar, his guard bashed him up and another guard. Seeing Jha bleeding, most society members rushed to his help. At this point, the guard of Kumar allegedly held up his gun and issued a threat. Society residents then closed the gate, blocking Kumar.
T Series employees, whose office is opposite Oberoi Springs, allegedly pushed the gate open and began fighting with society members, forcing them to call police.
Jha was rushed to hospital, while Kumar left the premises.
Vinod Bhanushali, president marketing, media publicity, T Series, said Bhushan was visiting music director Anand Raj Anand who stays in B wing of the society.
"When Bhushan entered the building, a security guard intercepted his car and began arguing with his guard Devendra and driver Babulal. Soon, society guards began bashing them," he said.
Bhanushali said Devendra and Babulal retaliated and company employees rushed to demand release of Bhushan's car.
Amboli assistant police inspector Rajendra Kane said guards from both sides had been sent for medical examination and a case of rioting would be registered once reports arrive. "We will see CCTV footage at the society before registering a case," said Harishchandra Vhatkar, senior police inspector.
