Bicycle helmet boy is a young boy from Dera Sacha Sauda, a religious organisation whose members are believed to be the descendants of Gurus.
He was wearing a helmet, but he is not a devotee of Gurmukh.
His father is also a member of the organisation.
In March this year, a court banned the organisation from promoting the wearing of helmets.
The court was hearing a petition filed by the NGO Bajrang Dal, which challenged the government’s decision to ban the organisation, which is run by Dera followers.
The NGO said that helmet wearing was illegal in the Dera sect.
Dera’s head of religious education said that he was unaware of the decision, and that helmet boys had been wearing helmets for some time.
“I do not know why the government is taking this decision,” he said.
In April this year a Dera follower was killed by an unidentified person while riding a dirtbike.
The Dera spokesperson denied any connection to the killing, saying the incident had nothing to do with religion.
The Hindu had reported on July 5 that a bike helmet boy was killed in the capital after he was allegedly beaten up by a group of men.
The boy was riding his dirtbike with two other youths when he was approached by a gang of men in the area of Shahbagh Market in South Delhi.
The group of about 10 men tried to stop the boy, who was travelling along a dirt bike track.
According to police, one of the men reportedly punched the boy in the head, before one of them punched the other.
Police said the other man, who had been with the group, also tried to fight with the victim.
A group of boys were present nearby, and police have said they chased the assailants off the dirt bike.
The victim’s father had told police that he saw his son being beaten with sticks, and the boy was later taken to a nearby hospital.
The father said that the assailants have been arrested.
