The victim, identified as Golu Kumar, 23, of Lohara village, suffered injuries and was rushed to a hospital. Kumar said they used to charge 150 for each person coming to swim. On June 13, 15 assailants turned up there and opened an assault on him alleging him of overcharging.

He said on the same day, he had requested the visitors to avoid wearing shorts as women also visit for swimming. Some people objected to it and indulged in a spat with him. At around 11.30pm, the accused turned up at the swimming pool and assaulted him.

ASI Sukhdev Singh, investigating officer from Daba police station, said the police have registered a case under Sections 307 (attempt to murder), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 506 (criminal intimidation), 148 (rioting, armed with deadly weapons) and 149 (every member of unlawful assembly guilty of offence committed in prosecution of common object) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against unidentified accused.
