Dear Knowledgeable members, I work as a contract security person in a reputed company in Bangalore. Recently during my shift, myself and my colleagues noticed a person who had got assaulted by an unknown person bleeding from the head and asking for help in front of our company gate. I have informed company security manager and telephoned nearest police station and I have given him basic first aid after checking him . His friends got him admitted in hospital. Now Security in charge of company has sent a Mail stating that only Company employees should be given treatment and not outside persons. Please guide me on this as your answers will help other security persons like me who are on duty...Thank you all..!!

Hello 123punchbala123,

Your presence of mind & response is really commendable.

While I leave it to other more-able members of this Forum to quote the appropriate Laws/Acts, all I can say is this: First & Foremost you, me & everyone is a Human Being and only then would any other tag apply--be it father, mother, son, daughter, friend, employee, etc. I think there were many Supreme Court & High Court judgements reg such situations--essentially justifying prompt & immediate action by anyone @ the scene of the crime/accident, irrespective of what he/she is in other contexts.

Request/Suggest members who are adept in the Law to give him some clear References as guidelines w.r.t. the Law--so that he can handle his Company authorities--whose response/reaction is in itself very surprising & dismaying. Rather than appreciating such an action by one of their staff [contract or permanent doesn't matter] & using it as an example to others within the Company, the recommended action only displays a total lack-of-social-empathy on his part.
