Chandni Chowk temple vandalised: Hindu outfits issue ultimatum to police as situation in Old Delhi remains tense

He has given four days ultimatum for the same.
If cops failed to arrest the culprits, all Hindu organisations will stage a protest in the area, warned Alok Kumar, on Tuesday.
On Monday, tension prevailed in old Delhi's Chawri Bazaar area after a fight over parking a scooter took a communal turn and a temple was vandalised in the locality, police said.
Security has been beefed up in the Lal Kuan locality to prevent any flare-up, they said.
On late Saturday night, the trouble began when Aas Mohammad (20) was parking his scooter outside a building. Sanjeev Gupta, a resident of the building, who runs an eatery stall there, objected to it, witnesses said.
Gupta's wife Babita said when her husband objected to parking the vehicle near the stall, Mohammad left, but returned promptly with more men who were "probably drunk" and beat him up.
Saqib, a 27-year-old software engineer and a local, narrated a different version.
"When Mohammad parked his scooter, Gupta asked him to move it somewhere else or he will set it on fire. Thereafter, a quarrel broke out and Gupta, along with some other person, took Mohammad inside the building and beat him up," said Aqib Hassan (25), who lives in the locality.
"When Mohammad was beaten up, he and his other family members went to police station and filed a case," he said.
A video surfaced online which purportedly showed a man allegedly being beaten up by some people, who were suspected to be drunk, over a parking issue.
