Meerut: Communal tensions prevail after two minor boys fire ‘toy guns’ outside a temple to spread fear

On the basis of the CCTV footage, the Police has detained son of one Chand, who owns a hotel 'Ashiq Ali' at Idgah cross roads, and his son's friend.

Communal tension prevailed in Prahladnagar area of Meerut, Uttar Pradesh after two minor boys allegedly fired toy guns outside a temple with an intention to spread fear. As per reports, on Monday, two boys, who were riding a two-wheeler fired shots in the air from a gun near a temple and escaped.


Upon hearing the gunshots, the people in the neighbourhood were terrified. Some even tried to chase the culprits but they managed to escape. Meanwhile, the Police managed to nab two suspects, both minor boys. On the basis of the CCTV footage, the Police has detained son of one Chand, who owns a hotel ‘Ashiq Ali’ at Idgah cross roads, and his son’s friend.

The police have also recovered the ‘gun’ from which the shots were fired. The duo confessed that they bought the gun from a Nauchandi fair held there. The two-wheeler used in the ‘firing’ was also recovered. The witnesses, however, are not buying the police theory that the guns were fake. They say that when the shots were fired, smoke came out of the nozzle just like it would in case of real guns.

Actually, there is a temple nearby where women were busy singing bhajans. The duo just wanted to scare them off and hence they fired when they neared the temple. According to reports, the boys not only opened fire but also hurled abuses before escaping.
