Braveheart staffer to get award
A sweeper of Sunrise hospital, where a shootout took place on Tuesday, will soon be getting a bravery award for saving a life during the incident. The brave sweeper,  Arjun(name changed), a resident of Khandsa village,  has been working for the hospital for the last eight months.

According to a source in the hospital, during the shootout, one of the family members of the patients was sitting inside the intensive care unit (ICU) near Joginder, 26, and Satveer, 50. When the shootout started, Arjun thrashed one of the accused, took him to a washroom adjacent to the ICU, and locked him from outside.

For this act of bravery, the hospital authority has decided to honour him. To save him from any threat later on, the hospital staff requested anonymity for Arjun.

Meanwhile on Wednesday, Joginder, one of the victims, succumbed to his injuries in Medicity Medanta hospital. His father, Satveer Singh Raghav, is still fighting for his life in the same hospital.

Also, Gurgaon police have arrested three accused while five others are still absconding. ‘The arrested have been identified as Manoj, Dinesh and Raju. Manoj is the main accused, who was arrested in the morning from his residence in Khandsa village. Dinesh and Raju were arrested late in the evening,’ said Maheshwar Dayal, deputy commissioner of police (west).

The FIR lodged in Kherki Daula police station by the family members mentioned  five of the accused.

A  case has been registered against eight persons. ‘As per the FIR, the names mentioned are Manoj, Mohan, Basan, Kalu and Ram Avtar,’ a police official said.

In 2011, Satveer had a conflict with a group of people over some property matter. The case is still pending and on Tuesday morning, both parties had to attend the hearing in the local court in Khandsa village.

Ahead of the hearing, a scuffle took place between them, after which the duo were admitted to the Sunrise hospital.

The accused reached the hospital and opened fire on the victims.
