The first is registered under IPC sections 279 (rash driving), 337 (causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others), and 338 (causing grievous hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others).

The incident took place last Thursday evening at the home of Mohammad Sajid. He, his wife, his children, and some relatives who were visiting them, were in the house at the time. Two men on a motorcycle spotted the boys of the family playing cricket outside and allegedly confronted them, telling them to “go to Pakistan and play.” Soon, the men and their friends barged into Sajid’s home, attacked his relatives and ransacked the house.
