Not too long ago, a 31-year-old drunk man in Dwarka’s Sector 23 had allegedly tried to fire at a cop after being stopped for a routine check.
Tuesday’s incident comes on the eve of Diwali, one of the biggest Hindu festivals. Obviously, this is not what the owners of the gutted vehicle would have wished on the eve of an auspicious festival.
