He had also a half-burnt voter ID identifying him as the son of Mohan Singh.”Bagri further said, “On the complaint of a girl, a case has been filed against the bangle seller for allegedly sexually harassing her & forging the documents, under relevant sections of POCSO & sections 354, 354 (a), 420, 467, 468, & 471 of IPC. He has been rounded up.”After Sunday morning’s attack, the state’s Home Minister Narottam Mishra said, “If a man hides his name, caste and religion then bitterness comes in,” adding that the incident should not be given “communal colour”.”He was using a Hindu name, though he belonged to a different community. He also had two different Aadhaar cards… he was selling bangles which our daughters wear and apply henna during sawan (monsoon)… that’s how the altercation started,” the minister said.
