The video is from April 1 and the CCTV footage of the incident surfaced recently.

Police Says Spot Was Becoming A Hub For Vegabond

However, the Police in its clarification said that the shopkeeper was asked to shut down his shop as it was turning into a hang-out place for vegabonds. Anti-social elements used to gather at the shop late in the night and create nuisance, said the police.

Old Shop Useful For People

According to the locals, the shop proves to be handy for people who are out late in the night. The shop also helps the relatives of people who come to visit a hospital nearby.

The shop has been in existance since decades and has been operating 24 X 7 for years now, said the shopkeeper. He refuted police version that the shop was becoming a spot for vegabonds and said that he only serves the people who come to his shop to buy the needful.
