This often leads to traffic problems near her stall in the area. Police said they received complaints from residents about traffic jam after she organised a ‘bhandara’ on the roadside. When the police team reached the spot, she allegedly misbehaved with them.

So, her stall was seized and she was taken to the police station. However, no case has been filed against Ms Dixit and she was never arrested, DCP, Outer Delhi said.

Social media is filled with several videos of the girl selling 'Vada Pav'. More than her food, she is the news for her alleged fights with locals and officials in the area.
