Deputy Commissioner of POlice Atul Kumar Thakur said the incident happened in the Shastri Park area around 4.30 a.m.

“A man urinating in the open was warned against doing so by the accused in the case. He ignored him and went away by an autorickshaw.”

The accused is absconding and a case has been filed against him.
