The police, however, denied any ''communal angle'' in the incident.
The video shows a man covered in blood and holding a cloth to his head to stop the bleeding.
''My two-month-old son was on the terrace. These people were bursting firecrackers after Pakistan won the T20 match against India. When I objected to it, they started pelting stones. Later, they also fired,'' he alleged in the video.
Police said the incident took place Wednesday morning and a PCR call was received at around 11.15 am.
A senior police officer said both the parties were known to each other and fought over pigeon flying.
“It was an altercation between two parties over a petty issue for which legal action has been initiated and suspects/accused have been identified. There is nothing communal in this as alleged in the tweet. SHO Seelampur is directed to personally monitor it,” the DCP said in a tweet.
