Hours after a conflict between chaat sellers in Uttar Pradesh’s Baghpat went viral, the person on the centre of the brawl revealed what went down.
Harinder, who claims to have a 40-year-old institution, stood out among the many eight males arrested after the combat. Nicknamed “chacha“, he instructed information company ANI that he had suffered due to his rivals over the previous few days.
“They kept drawing my customers away…they kept telling them come to our shop, his food is last night’s…The customers would return my chaat,” Harinder complained.
“They did this four or five times”. He made this remarks earlier than his arrest.

Matters got here to a head yesterday when the eight males from two rival chaat stalls began beating one another on the highway with iron rods and sticks.
The weird combat at a preferred market on the town continued for about 20 minutes earlier than it broke up. The video, recorded presumably by a bystander, quickly emerged on social media and went viral.

On social media, customers in contrast the combat to a WWE match and a few even used the raging hashtag “Pawri Ho Rahi Hai”.
Harinder, or “Chacha“, grabbed consideration due to his huge hair, dyed with Mehendi. Some in contrast him to Einstein.
”Chacha’s Pawri Ho rahi hai,” some tweeted.
