An incident of ramming car into people offering Eid prayers has been happened in India on Wednesday. At least 17 devotees were injured in the car attack.

According to media reports, a motorist rammed his car into devotees emerging from a mosque in Delhi's Khureji area but police said no one was injured, denying their own earlier claim that many suffered injuries.

A Delhi Police statement said the claim that 17 people were injured was incorrect.

But police officials admitted that protests broke out in the area in east Delhi after the incident.

An investigation has been ordered to find out about the lapses in security since the police knew that the devout would gather on the road to offer Eid prayers.
