5 in­jured in brawl over ‘noisy’ mo­tor­bike, footage goes vi­ral

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES CITY -

New Delhi: As many as five peo­ple were in­jured af­ter two fam­i­lies at east Delhi’s MS Park clashed over the loud noise made by a mo­tor­cy­cle. A CCTV footage of the in­ci­dent went vi­ral on Satur­day.

Po­lice reg­is­tered cross FIRs on Novem­ber1, a day af­ter the in­ci­dent. DCP (Shah­dara) Meghna Ya­dav said that two cases have been reg­is­tered based on the com­plaints by Ash­wini Sharma and Mo­hit Sharma. The brawl al­legedly hap­pened in front of cops. Se­nior of­fi­cers said that they are look­ing into any lapse of ac­tion and would ini­ti­ate ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tion ac­cord­ingly.

A pre­lim­i­nary probe re­vealed that the in­ci­dent hap­pened at Ram Na­gar colony in MS Park. Of­fi­cers said that the ar­gu­ment started when Ash­wini, an ad­vo­cate, raised ob­jec­tion to Mo­hit’s mo­tor­cy­cle, which al­legedly pro­duces loud dis­turb­ing noise.

Ash­wini told cops that on the evening of Oc­to­ber 31, Mo­hit was pass­ing Ash­wini’s ho- use on his mo­tor­cy­cle. Ash­wini came out of his house and asked Mo­hit to ab­stain from us­ing his mo­tor­cy­cle in the lo­cal­ity fol­low­ing which an ar­gu­ment started. Fam­ily mem­bers too joined in the ar­gu­ments, which soon snow­balled into a brawl. Cops said that both sides pelted stones at each other and then dam­aged ve­hi­cles by hit­ting them with rods.

In the CCTV footage of the in­ci­dent, a group of men are seen dam­ag­ing mo­tor­cy­cles and as­sault­ing each other. The cops are also stand­ing at the spot, but lo­cal res­i­dents al­leged that they didn’t in­ter­vene.

In his com­plaint, Ash­wini said that fol­low­ing the ar­gu­ment, Mo­hit called in goons from Loni who at­tacked him and his fam­ily mem­bers. The same al­le­ga­tions have been lev­elled by Mo­hit’s brother Ro­hit against Ash­wini and his fam­ily mem­bers.

Se­nior po­lice of­fi­cers said that they are yet to make any ar­rest in the case and are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the al­le­ga­tions made by both the groups.
