Delhi, Khan Market

A Zomato food delivery man set his bike on fire at Delhi's Khan Market and started throwing stones at police when they tried to catch him. He was eventually overpowered and taken into custody after dramatic scenes that pulled a huge crowd.

The incident, which happened on Sunday, gave rise to panic in the market area that houses popular restaurants and showrooms of several prominent brands.

As maintained by police sources, 23-year-old Nadeem came to the market the previous day to collect food from one of the restaurants there. While he was waiting to receive the package, a couple passed by. The woman accused him of staring at her and complained at the police outpost there.

While no written complained was filed, one of the policemen on duty slapped Nadeem. Upset over this, he returned the next day and set his two-wheeler on fire, said sources.

Police personnel and fire engines arrived at the scene soon after the fire broke out. The flames from the two-wheeler had spread to a nearby furniture shop before they were brought under control.

Videos recorded on the spot displayed the burning two-wheeler as Nadeem threw stones at the police to avoid being caught. A separate clip displayed the man after he had been caught. As the police take him away, he is heard shouting abusive remark.

A massive crowd is seen assembled at the scene and barricades are seen on the ground, suggesting the chaos led to the dramatic episode.
