An emotional Nitin Himatsingka, brother of arrested Mukesh Hyundai owner Rishabh Himatsingka, publicly said sorry to the people belonging to the Assamese community across the globe.
Addressing the media on Monday with folded hands, he said, “It’s not an Assamese versus non-Assamese incident. Whatever has happened is very unfortunate and it shouldn’t happen anymore to anyone else. I request you all to not give it a communal angle. I assure you that such an incident will never happen again. I apologize on behalf of my family to all the people belonging to the Assamese community across the world.
He further added, “Our family is staying here for around 100 years. Our three generations have been born and brought up here. I am sorry again for such an unfortunate incident. And there was no reason for him (Rishabh) to run away. We are operating our business here. He was cooperating with the police. He was rather coming back from to meet the police when he was arrested.”
Mukesh Hyundai showroom’s owner Rishabh Himatsingka has been in the news for his alleged harassment against one of his aged employee who was made to sit on his haunches holding his ears while the rest of the staff was seen celebrating in the background.
After massive protests by various organizations and individuals, the showroom and service center of the car dealer at Ganeshguri was closed down on Friday following massive protests over the alleged incident of ill-treatment by Rishabh meted out against his employee. Protestors demanded to keep the showroom shut down until Rishabh and his family does not seek a public apology on the entire incident.
