Interestingly, Sunil has a history of committing such crimes and he has also thrashed one official in the past.

According to sources, Sunil had claimed for a possession of a plot in year 2005. However, due to insufficient legal paper works, he couldn’t prove his claim in the court. Recently, another man raised a claim for the same property and was communicating with Ankush regarding the same. Furious over this, Sunil had shared several of heated argument with Ankush and also abused him over calls.

On Wednesday, Sunil along with his three-four accomplices approached NIT and surrounded Ankush. Sunil first started hurling abuses at Ankush before thrashing him in full public view and also threatened him with dire consequences before leaving the NIT premises.
