Batsmanís six smashed Rakhi Birla car windscreen: Cops

He lifted his bat to hit a six. He saw the ball sailing and smiled. Until it landed on Delhi Minister Rakhi Birla's car and smashed its windscreen.

Ever since, the 11-year-old boy, a resident of Mangolpuri, has been running scared.

A day after it was claimed that Rakhi Birla's car was attacked by unidentified persons in Mangolpuri,police found that a ball had accidentally hit the car's windscreen.

The incident had led to the to registration of a complaint against unidentified persons to nab the "culprits" and party workers issued statements about Birla being "undeterred" by the incident.

Police officers said it was an accident.

A senior police officer said, "Before final registration of an FIR, an investigation was carried out, which revealed that it was an accident and nothing else. No case in the matter will be registered."

Speaking to Newsline, the boy said he did not know that the minister had parked her car there. He said that soon after the incident, he apologised.

"I was scared. I started crying and called my mother. I did not do anything intentionally," he said.

The Women and Child Development Minister, who is the youngest member of the AAP cabinet, had gone to a temple in Northwest Delhi and was sitting in the front seat of her car when the ball landed on the windscreen.

Residents claimed that the boy's mother had gone to apologise to Birla but since the area was crowded, it is possible that she did not hear the boy's mother.
