Police Officer Daughter’s car attacked by Kanwariyas at Moti Nagar, New Delhi

On August 7th, 2018 a group of Kanwariyas vandalized a car (Hyundai i10) at Moti Nagar, New Delhi on a busy road which led to a traffic jam on the stretch for a few hours. The whole incident was captured on the camera.

The video shows the mob of Kanwariyas brutally vandalizing the car by breaking the car windows and the windscreen with lathis (sticks) before turning it over. The whole incident took place in the presence of two police officers, who took no action to stop this shameful incident.

The police said a PCR call was received around 5:30 PM about the violence. When the police reached the spot, the mob had fled. As per the reports, the car belonged to a police officer’s daughter who had allegedly brushed past a Kanwariya.

“As soon as he got hit, other Kanwariyas gathered and started arguing with the woman and her friends. As the kanwariyas rose in number, both of them fled, leaving the car behind,” said a senior officer.

Reportedly, the woman has refused to file a written complaint. However, the police are taking cognizance of the incident and registering a case under relevant sections.

The proposed sections under which such offence falls is section 143 (Punishment for unlawful assembly) and section 290 (Punishment for public nuisance) of Indian Penal Code, 1860.

This deplorable incident reflects the inability of the law enforcement agencies to protect the citizens of the country. The entire law and order got paralyzed in just about few minutes, showing no fear of the authorities.

This is not the first time that such an event has happened. Time and again people of the nation are being terrorized in the name of the religion and unfortunately no action is implemented to date. May it be the political pressure or the religious hypocrisy, strict and speedy action should be taken against the culprits.
