New Delhi, July 3:
Home minister Amit Shah summoned Delhi Police commissioner Amulya Patnaik on Wednesday over communal violence in Delhi’s Chandni Chowk area.
“It was a general briefing on the Chandni Chowk incident, was asked about the situation and action had been taken against people identified,” Patnaik said after the meeting.
A fight over parking a scooter snowballed into communal tension at Lal Kuan near Chawri Bazar in Old Delhi on Monday as groups of Hindu and Muslim residents accused each other of stone pelting and violence on Sunday night.
The two men involved in the parking row — Aas Mohammad and Sanjeev Kumar Gupta — sustained injuries, as did a photojournalist from a Hindi daily who was clicking pictures at the spot, police said.
Delhi Police chief Patnaik said four people have been arrested and the situation in the area is under control. “The CCTV footage is about a particular group of criminals. They will be identified and arrested soon,” he said.
