The actor informed this attack being a planned activity as Ansh after his fallout with the said contractor, gave the contract to another contractor.
The actor informed, “The attack was planned by a contractor who was earlier given charge of the construction of the house, but this year in March (before the lockdown), he decided to leave the work after an argument over the payment of dues.” The incident happened on Saturday, with the actor filing a complaint about it at Paschim Vihar police station on that day itself. Besides this he was also mentioned when the actor was away for work, the former contractor threatened his mother and sister as well.
He added, “The construction of this house is very close to my heart and is my dream, so even while I was busy with my shoots in Mumbai, I wanted to get the work started here. My mother told me about this contractor and I told her that if she thinks he is good, we can get the construction work started.”
When the actor found out that the contractor was not meeting the deadline and followed by which he asked for more money beyond the deal of Rs. 21 lakh, they had an argument. “Around Diwali last year, I found out that he was not completing the work, as promised, on time and gave him a warning, but he pleaded to stay on. In March, he demanded more money and I told him that I will only pay the remaining amount after the work is completely finished. The initial deal was of Rs 21 lakh, out of which I had already paid this guy Rs 16 lakh by March,” he adds.
He also mentioned in the month of May he also filed a complaint against him for threatening his mother and sister, he said, “There was a lot of work still pending. We had an argument and he decided to leave the work and then the lockdown happened. I was in Mumbai during the lockdown and this contractor would threaten my mother and sister and would say things like ‘ghar se uthwa lunga.’ I was scared and filed a police complaint against him in May for threatening and harassing my mother and sister and action was also taken and he was warned.” ALSO READ: Amitabh Bachchan Birthday Special: Shivin Narang, Ansh Bagri, Ayyaz Ahmed And Other TV Actors Salute The Megastar
Narrating the incident when he was beaten up by the former contractor’s men he said, “At present, we have a new contractor and work is going on. On Saturday, a few men came to my home and they said that they wanted to talk to me. I went outside and could see this contractor making a video and these men started gathering around me. I sensed something was wrong and immediately, I called the police and they said they were on their way. After asking these men what they wanted, I thought I should go back inside. As I turned, one man pushed me and around 8-10 of them started beating me up.”
While the actor revealed the cops taking 8-10 minutes to arrive at the spot, only an old man from the neighbourhood came forward to help him. “It was so disheartening to see that there were people on the road watching 8-10 men beating up one guy and no one came forward to help me apart from one uncle who risked his life and stepped forward. Thank god that the police came on time and rescued me,” said Ansh.
