SC directs police to act against rampaging Kanwariyas

August 10, 2018 12:10

The Supreme Court today directed the police to act against those Kanwariyas who indulge in vandalism and take the law in their hands.

The Delhi Police yesterday made the first arrest in the case where the Kanwariyas went on a rampage and damaged a Hyundai i10 car near Moti Nagar. A 26-year-old man was arrested in the matter.

The incident took place on Tuesday on a stretch of busy road near Moti Nagar metro station causing a traffic snarl and forcing some of the commuters to take a detour.

The accused, Rahul Billa, was identified through a CCTV footage and was later arrested. Billa is a resident of Uttam Nagar and has been previously involved in thefts, the police said.

A grey car being driven by a woman, who was with a male friend, allegedly hit a Kanwariya.
