Days after Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung imposed a ban on firecrackers, except during religious functions, Delhi Police Friday arrested a 44-year-old man for allegedly bursting crackers at his niece’s wedding at Raj Niwas Marg.
DCP (north district) Madhur Verma said the arrest was made after a police officer found the man bursting crackers. “The accused, identified as Sarwan Kumar, was attending his niece’s wedding. He was arrested from the spot and later released on bail. A case under IPC Section 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of the IPC has been registered against him at Civil Lines police station,” Verma said.
The case was registered on the basis of a complaint by sub-inspector Kunal Kishor, who
was on night patrolling duty at 10 pm when he heard some crackers outside Modi Bhawan, where the wedding was taking place.
“With the help of police constable Mukesh, they dispersed the crowd and found that Kumar had already burnt skyshot crackers and was burning more when the baaraat was arriving. He informed his Station House Officer and told him that Kumar was violating norms. The SHO asked him to take legal action,” a senior officer said.
