“The auto driver was scared. He initially said that there were ghosts on the road. Soon after he complained, several other commuters too complained of a few youths who were pranking commuters. We arrested seven men later in the day after obtaining some CCTV footage. The boys were trying to pull pranks. They are young and wanted to have some fun but scaring people and causing mischief is illegal and since the auto driver filed a complaint, we had to take action. They procured station bail and have been let off since the offences are bailable.” Sashikumar, the Deputy Commissioner of Police – Bangalore North, highlighted about the incident.
