New Delhi:

A 23-year-old man set his bicycle on fire in Delhi’s upscale Khan Market and began throwing rocks at police when they tried to catch him. He was eventually subdued and taken into custody after dramatic scenes that drew a huge crowd. He was then arrested.

The incident, which happened on Sunday, has caused panic in the upmarket market district which is home to popular restaurants and showrooms of several top brands.

According to police sources, Nadeem, 23, came to the market the day before to collect food from one of the restaurants. As he waited to receive the package, a couple passed by. The woman accused him of staring at her and complained to the police outpost.

Although no written complaint was filed, one of the police officers on duty slapped Nadeem. Upset by this, he returned the next day and set his two-wheeler on fire, sources said.

Police personnel and fire engines rushed to the scene shortly after the fire broke out. The flames from the two-wheeler had spread to a nearby furniture store before being brought under control.

Police arrived at the scene and found the accused Nadeem, a resident of Hauz Rani, behaving aggressively under the influence of alcohol. He was then subdued, the PTI news agency quoted the police.

Nadeem works in an Indian bike taxi aggregator and logistics service provider.

Videos recorded at the scene showed the bike on fire as Nadeem threw rocks at police to avoid being caught. A separate clip showed the man after being caught. As the police take him away, he is heard shouting insults.

A huge crowd is seen gathered on the spot and barricades are visible on the ground, suggesting the chaos caused by the dramatic episode.
