A magistrate's court here today sentenced a shopkeeper to two years' rigorous imprisonment for beating up a customer who insisted on weighing oil before purchasing it. Magistrate Nidhi Modita Pinto found the shopkeeper Yogesh guilty under the IPC section 325 (causing grievous hurt). A prosecution officer said that a police complaint was filed on December 20, 2008 against Yogesh, who runs a grocery store in Hira Nagar area of the city.
Yogesh was accused of hitting one Ravindra Kumar with a stick when the latter said that he would not buy oil from him unless it was properly weighed. Kumar's wrist was fractured in the attack.
