However, the driver did not slow down and hit my foot and I eventually fell down. After hitting me, the driver came out of the car and threatened me with a sharp object. I got scared. The suspect picked my walking stick and started beating me up mercilessly with it. He kept on abusing and thrashing me. Local residents came to my rescue. Some senior citizens asked the man not to beat me up. He threatened to eliminate me if was seen around that street or park again. He also threatened me against reporting the matter to the police,” submitted Kalra.
