The police has now filed a complaint against the mobile company and others present for blocking the road and traffic for hours, booking them under IPC sections 283 (obstruction in public way) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention), reports Indian Express. They said that they faced difficulties while managing the crowd; they did not anticipate so many people to throng the location, reports Deccan Chronicle.
