Such characters will keep reacting, ensure he doesn't create a scene when you are outside with somebody important. Avoid when you see him anywhere. If he is creating the same scene, raise the issue with your boss and his boss and ensure mutually the issue is resolved.

Dear Memebrs,
Everyone except a few who have asked "what the real problem is"...
"How can you people give suggestions without even knowig what the problem is? Like waht DADA mentioned - what if the problem falls in any of the options he had mentioned? Imagine if it were not Pravin who approached citehr, but the person who he fought with - would you also tell him (without analyzing the real problem) to ignore / keep HR in loop/ etc?....
BTW HR needs to interfere if the issue might create a problem at work, or will be a disturbance for others at work... What if its something else personal like an affair related / or old enemity?"

Hi Pravin
I agree with Asha Mathew, we need to perform root cause analysis of this incident which triggered him to become abusive & aggresive. Further few suggesition to handle him.
1. Inform your HR deptt about incident & mark Cc to your & his reporting manager.
2. Follow up with HR on your complaint.
3. File an application ( or FIR) to Police Station about physical & mental harrasment and get the copy received / stamped from PS.
4. Continue this practice for 2-3 times.
5. If HR fails to talk to him and still he harras you then you should file FIR along with photocopies of previous complaints.
We should be patient enough to handle such person in life, but definitely do not leave them without an appropriate action within frame of Law. If you will ignore tommorrow he may become much bigger problem for you and community.

You never outlined the motives of the altercation , which makwes it difficult for one to give an objective opinion

stay calm and inform the team lead of your team and his lead, only in the case if the argument was regarding job. But remember one thing, bang him with the circle of policies & procedure.
Staying calm would simply mean that the argument of the other employee was correct and you are the guilty one.

glad that you remind calm
you can initiate as an HR Policy to have a Emplyee Adherence Charter, wher thre should be such provisions for adherence to office decorum , behaviour in and outside the office /work place
Also suggest you do a root cause analysis for such behaviour by employess so that recurrence of such things are avoided:idea:

Dear Pravinji;
Go to your bedroom. Close the door and windows. Draw picture of your colleague and also write his name on paper. Paste temporary that paper on pillow or bad. Take a big stick in your hand and imagine as if the fallow is there in the bed. Now bit him with the stick and also abuse him carefully, so that others do not hear. Go on beating him till you are exhausted fully and all your anger is thrown out. Now seat silently for few minutes and keep your eyes closed and experience emptiness and calmness within.
This is the approved technique and several Japanese company make a special sound proof room for the purpose and also keep sticks and rubber statues of men and women there. You may try this and report your experience to other members.
His Blessings;
