Lucknow, Aug 9: Two groups of Kanwariyas in Uttar Pradesh's Bulandshahr on Thursday morning. It is not yet known if people are injured in the violence or not yet.

A group of kanwariyas went on rampage, vandalising a car in Delhi's Moti Nagar after it allegedly brushed past one of them. The incident took place on a stretch of busy road near Moti Nagar metro station causing a traffic snarl and forcing some of the terrified commuters to take a detour.

According to police, the grey i10 car was being driven by a woman, who was with a male friend, when the car allegedly hit a Kanwariya. A heated argument ensued between the two sides following which the Kanwariyas damaged the vehicle with sticks, Deputy Commissioner of Police (west) Vijay Kumar reportedly said.

Recently, videos were put up on facebook showing Kanwar Yatris openly destroying cars by hitting it repeatedly with a stick and even overturning it.

Kanwariyas are devotees of Lord Shiva who complete a journey to Haridwar, Gaumukh, and Gangotri to fetch the waters of the Ganges.
