A film producer and make-up artiste has claimed that his 22-year-old daughter nearly lost her life because of police apathy.
Sonali Singh (22) and Abdul Rahman (2) were stuck in Kapilvastu Society’s elevator for 30 minutes
Subhash Singh, who is Katrina Kaif’s make-up artiste and recently co-produced film Chalk n Duster, alleged that his daughter, Sonali, and a two-year-old neighbour, Abdul Rahman, were stuck in his building’s elevator for nearly half an hour on Friday afternoon. Both his daughter and the child were unconscious when they were brought out. The two were then rushed to Millat Hospital, and later discharged. “They could have choked to death,” said Singh. Singh, a resident of Kapilvastu Society in Goregaon (West), said, this is not the first time that such an incident had taken place in the building’s elevator. Despite repeated complaints, the builder and the society authorities had refused to repair the elevator, he claimed.
However, according to him, what made it worse was that the Goregaon police haven’t taking action against his written complaints. He claimed that he had filed three non-cognisable complaints with the police in the past, but they did not act. “This time, too, when I visited the police, they refused to take my complaint,” Singh alleged.
An official from the Goregaon police station said, “We have already sent a notice to the society.”
