A heated argument between a 20-year-old student and Delhi Civil Defence (DCD) volunteers, who were issuing challans to people not wearing masks, turned violent at a traffic signal in South Delhi on Monday.

The DCD volunteers allegedly hit the student with a belt after which, the latter, along with a few other people passing by, “attacked them”.

FIRs have been registered by both parties at the Hauz Khas police station.

Explaining about the incident, DCP (South), Atul Kumar Thakur, said, “The incident came to light after we received a PCR call at around 3 pm on Monday. The DCD employees, who were issuing challans to people not wearing masks at a traffic signal near the IIT gate, had stopped Gitesh Dagar’s car. He was travelling with his aunt and her daughter from a doctor’s clinic. On stopping the car while the traffic light was green, a vehicle from behind rammed into Dagar’s car following which he came out and started arguing with the volunteers.”
