Three minor girls stuck in elevator of Assotech Nest society in Ghaziabad
New Delhi, December 2
The Ghaziabad Police have booked two members of a Ghaziabad housing society’s Apartment Owner Association (AOA) after three girls got stuck inside an elevator for around 25 minutes.
The incident happened in the Assotech Nest society in Crossings Republik township.
The video of the CCTV footage was shared widely on social media that showed the distressed girls all aged between 8 to 10 years, attempting to force open the doors of the lift.
The father of one of the children filed a complaint with police and stated that the lift faced frequent problems and that multiple complaints raised by the residents had been ignored.
The father of the girl alleged that Rs 25 lakhs was being spent on lift maintenance but the repair works had been done improperly due to collusion between the AOA and the lift maintenance company.
The police have registered an FIR under IPC sections 287 (negligent conduct with respect to machinery) and 336 (act endangering life/safety of others).
