GREATER NOIDA: A 64-year-old heart patient nursing a wound in the leg had to spend the night in the guardroom after a lift in in Beta 2 malfunctioned and could only be repaired in the morning.
Satish Walia, a retired police inspector from Chandigarh, said he had recently suffered a wound in the leg, which made it difficult for him to climb the stairs. Walia, who lives with six members of his family on the eighth floor, said he had been staying at home for the past few days but had come down on Saturday evening to get fresh air.

He came down in a lift around 6pm and sat near the guardroom for around two hours. When he sought to go up, he found that the only lift that had been working when he came down had become defunct.

“I immediately called up the building manager and informed him that the lift had developed a fault. He assured me it would be repaired soon, but instead, he put up a notice that the lift will be functional only in the morning. None in my family could lift me up the stairs. They had to bring down food and medicines for me while I spent the night in a chair,” Walia said. TNN
