Panic gripped a part of the diplomatic area when a Mercedes Benz owner threw up a fit and whipped out a revolver after a cab glazed past his costly car. Amid traffic jam near Turkish embassy, some onlookers mistook it as a “terror” strike before the air was cleared about road rage being the real cause behind the drama. Hauz Khas-resident Aman Verma was arrested at the spot, police said. He was carrying a licence for the revolver, which had a marking ‘Kanpur 2003’. Five cartridges were also recovered from his possession. The incident occurred after Aman’s car hit a Maruti Suzuki Eeco taxi near National Rail Museum in south Delhi’s Chanakyapuri. A case under Indian Penal Code and Arms Act has been registered with Chanakyapuri police station. Aman claims he aimed to open fire in the air to disperse the crowd. People at the spot, however, told police that Aman aimed to open fire at them due to which they got scared and began to leave.
