In a shocking incident, a retired Indian Army officer and his sons were thrashed by some people and ‘unidentified thugs’ in Bengaluru over a so-called property dispute.

According to a Hindustan Times report, a 70-year-old retired Army Colonel, identified as RS Uppal has written an emotional appeal to the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee seeking its intervention to protect his family after the assault incident happened.

On Wednesday, the letter, addressed to general secretary of the committee Manjinder Singh Sirsa was shared by him via Twitter. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has reportedly instructed the police to look into the matter.

The colonel said that his neighbours, who moved in on April 25, and unknown accomplices abused and thrashed his family and did not back down when the police complaint was registered against them.

It is alleged that unknown people were allowed to enter the gated community armed with rods and other weapons and they assaulted Colonel Uppal’s wife and his two sons, one of whom had to undergo a surgery to recover.

In the letter, Uppal has also mentioned that they were called ‘Pakistani’. He stated that despite the seriousness of the assault on the family, they were not given security even after they provided the CCTV footage of the incident.

“There are three cameras on the main road which captured the assault,” he mentioned.
