Altercation Over Kite flying Injures 3 in Capital

New Delhi

Three persons were injured and a bike was set on fire after two groups clashed following a minor altercation between two youths over kite flying in North East Delhi's Nand Nagri area here this afternoon, police said.

The incident took place around 1:30 PM in C-3 block in Nand Nagri area.

"It all started when two youths, who were flying kites in a park, had an argument after one of them allegedly threatened another belonging to a different community and demanded money to let him fly kite in the park," said a police official.

The minor argument soon snowballed into a clash with more people from the two communities joining in.

The warring group resorted to pelting stones and empty beer bottles. A bike was also set on fire.

Today being a holiday, a large crowd gathered within no time. Someone called police and even policemen who reached the spot first faced some resistance.

Soon, senior police officers reached the spot with forces and reined in the crowds before things blew out of proportion.

Heavy police deployment was made in the area to ensure peace and harmony.

"A case of rioting and damage to public property has been registered in this regard and we are trying to identify those persons involved in the incident," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (North-East) R A Sanjeev.
