A mob Wednesday manhandled the Ballabgarh-Sohna Road toll plaza staff and vandalised a toll booth, an official said. The incident happened when a Mahindra Scorpio bearing Faridabad registration number was stopped at the plaza for toll around 12.50 a.m.

"Not only did the vehicle occupants refuse to pay toll on the pretext that they are from a nearby village (Mohabatabad), they even parked their vehicle at one of the toll lanes and refused to clear the way," Gurgaon-Faridabad Toll Road (GFTR) spokesperson Sourav Sen said.

"When pressed, they called in supporters from their village who then manhandled the toll plaza shift in-charge Ram Ratan. About 15-20 people even ransacked the premises and damaged toll booth No. 2.," he said.A police complaint has been filed with the Dhauj police post on the border of Gurgaon-Faridabad, he added.
