This morning I was again targeted by security guards in DLF Promenade Mall when I was walking through it on my way to Ambience mall. 

Pictures of the men involved are attached. 

Two security guards were waiting for me at the elevator. 

One security guard at the connecting passage between DLF Promenade and Ambience Malls, again physically assaulted me. He followed me, attempted to physically grab me and then blocked my entrance to Ambience Mall standing before me and physically stopping me from opening the door. A man in a white shirt and black trousers was also involved. Two other men were also present and involved. 

This was again a planned and coordinated attack and this will be established by the CCTV cameras. 

After the assault on me on 18 April, I had met the DLF Emporio operations manager and the DLF Promenade General Manager the next day in the DLF Emporio Mall. They assured me this would not happen again and that they would take action against the security guards who assaulted me. 

Instead the same thing was attempted today. 

The security guard who followed me for about 100 meters and who physically restrained me today also targeted me with some highly poisonous chemical fumes. 

Two security guards in DLF Emporio Mall were also involved. Their pictures are attached.

An FIR must be registered against the Policemen and DLF Promenade Mall security and staff and any others involved in the physical assault on me last night. 

The facts are these. I am a regular visitor to the Mall. I am a whistleblower exposing corruption, fraud and forgery by General Electric Company in connection with the Rail Ministry's diesel locomotive factory Project at Marhowra. I am now fighting this corruption battle in the Supreme Court of India. A copy of my CV is attached. 

On multiple past visits, I have been targeted with poisonous chemicals at DLF Promenade Mall. I have when possible taken pictures of those involved and made police complaints on email. Mall staff and security guards have been involved as are certain policemen. 

Yesterday, I was walking through DLF Promenade Mall on my way out, I was first insulted and abused by 5 men at the security post between Ambience and DLF Promenade Malls. 

On my way out, I was threatened by the security guards at the main gate. 

I told these men that I was within my rights to take a picture of someone targeting me and to send that to the Police with a complaint. I told these men that I would only talk to the Mall management. 

Two policemen in plainclothes who were clearly involved in this conspiracy to target me arrived. I told them the gist of the matter. They threatened me with the Police. They asked the guards to detain me. With what authority of law? I am making email complaints to the Police which are being ignored. I will move the Supreme Court for the registration of FIRs including against involved policemen. 

These men attempted to cover up my complaint of targeting by using the same policemen who are obviously involved in targeting me. 

It appears as if there was an intent to use the policemen waiting outside to physically harm me. 

After I took pictures of these men, I was ordered by them to delete those pictures. By what authority of law? 

These men and several others followed me outside the Mall to the main road. There in front of at least 5 policemen, one of these men ordered two female mall security guards to assault me and to snatch my phone. Two women jumped upon me and physically grabbed me and twisted my arm and tried to remove my phone from my hand. 

By what authority of law did these security guards use physical force against me and even touch me. What were the watching policemen doing? I was bruised and scratched and would have fallen to the ground. I was saved because three women passers-by came to my help. The female security guard can be heard telling these women to leave in the audio recording. 

After the women let go of me for a few minutes, a policeman came up to me. I asked him how I was attacked in his presence. Instead of helping me, he started threatening me and was aggressive and rude toward me. 

After this I was again grabbed and physically assaulted by the security guards on the instructions of this uniformed policeman. Then the passers-by appeared and with their help I managed to get away. 

There must be CCTV cameras even covering this section of the main road and the physical assault on me must have been captured by these cameras. 

I was illegally confined. I was physically threatened and physically assaulted. Attempts were made to snatch and destroy my phone. It appears as if the larger conspiracy was to abduct me after destroying my phone. 

An FIR needs to to registered against the persons involved. If it is not registered, I will be moving the Supreme Court of India seeking directions for the registration of an FIR.

Attempts were made to first detain me. And then to seize my phone. Two female security guards on the instructions of the policemen wrestled with me for my phone. I was brutally bruised.

I was saved only because three women passing by saw the commotion and came forward to help me.

I will be sending a detailed complaint tomorrow.
