Delhi Police on Thursday arrested a youth, part of a group of Kanwar pilgims for vandalizing a car after it brushed one of them, police said.
The police identified the accused as Rahul, a resident of west Delhi's Uttam Nagar. "He was clearly seen in CCTV camera footage along with 20 kanwariyas damaging a car in west Delhi's Moti Nagar," Deputy Commissioner of Police Vijay Kumar said.
Police teams scanned CCTV footages from over 20 cameras installed in nearby shops. "Rahul was arrested and has confessed to his involvement in vandalism. He works as a labourer and was earlier arrested in a theft case," Mr Kumar said.
"On the day of crime, one of the Kanwariyas got pushed by the vehicle, which resulted in heated arguments. One of occupants, a man and a woman, slapped a kanwariya, infuriating the entire group. They started damaging the car," the officer said.
The occupants of the car, he said, immediately left the spot and later refused to make a written complaint.
"On the basis of inquiries conducted by the police and the CCTV footage, a case has been registered," said Kumar, adding efforts were on to arrest thers.
A video showing the group damaging the vehicle with sticks had gone viral on social media.
