The police said the security guard, Nilesh Ghosh, was working with Guru Kripa lubricant oil depot in Manpada. The depot is owned by Yeshwant Aarya, 36, and his family. He has been working there for the last 18 months and his duty timings are from 10 pm to 10 am.
The police said that Aarya, the complainant in the case, said that the incident took place at 3:30 am on August 24, when Ghosh was sleeping outside the shop.

Aarya reached the shop and saw Ghosh bleeding. He took him to Rukmanibai Hospital, a civic-run hospital in Kalyan. After primary treatment, he was shifted to Sion Hospital. Aarya then approached the Manpada police, where a case was registered.
