Two security guards – Surender Bali and Naresh Mishra – who thrashed Sarna on September 13 at the South Park Apartments in Kalkaji area in south Delhi were also sent to judicial custody after they were presented in court at the end of their 14 days judicial custody.
Investigators said the two guards were arrested for assaulting Sarna, while the NRI’s four friends were taken into custody for drug abuse.
