Social Media Reactions

Reacting to the viral video, a user wrote, “ Utterly dangerous and act of crime in a public route."

Another user wrote, “This is too risky..Why risk one's life for these stunts…"

While another commented, “Shocking act, fearless to Indian law."

Another user wrote, “Arrest is not enough. They need to give severe punishment."

Meanwhile, Delhi police have said that they have registered more than 40 cases in the East and Northeast districts for alleged violation of the ban imposed by the Supreme Court on bursting firecrackers in the national capital on Diwali. Earlier, the Supreme Court had banned selling and purchasing firecrackers to curb air pollution in Delhi-NCR. 

“Celebration can be done only if you share what you have. Not by polluting the environment. If you do that, you are being selfish...These days it’s not the children who do it, but the elders are burning more crackers," the bench had observed.

"A total of 29 cases under Section 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) have been registered at various police stations of East district. Further investigation into the cases has been launched," PTI reported citing a senior police officer.
