NOIDA: An 18-year-old house help was arrested for allegedly attacking his 70-year-old employer with a knife on Sunday when the latter refused to grant him leave from work for a few days.
According to police, the victim, identified as Kamla Chand, stays with his wife in Alok Vihar Society. Chand told police that they had employed Roshan, from Bihar, as a full-time house help two months back.
The incident happened on Sunday afternoon when the accused allegedly attacked Chand in a fit of rage and ended up hurting the elderly in the neck.
Sudhir Kumar, station house officer (SHO), Sector 49 police station, said that Chand informed the police about the incident from the hospital after which a team visited him and recorded his statement. “Prima facie, the house help had asked for a break of a few days from work but the employer did not allow this and this led to an argument between the two,” Kumar said.
The SHO added that the accused attacked the elderly in the heat of the moment. “As told by the victim, the accused ran towards him with a knife and attacked him. He somehow saved himself and called his wife for help,” Kumar said. Chand was rushed to a nearby hospital where he is admitted in the ICU.
The doctors said his condition is stable.
Following the incident, police registered an FIR under sections 307 (attempt to murder) of the IPC against Roshan. “Later in the day, he was arrested from the house. We have sent him in judicial custody after producing him before a magistrate,” the officer said.
