Shimla street children can beg, but can’t play on Ridge?

I don’t know what are the orders to Shimla police regarding the beggar kids roaming on the Shimla Ridge. But, I happen to accidentally captured this scene. The kids were playing, the policemen came, almost trashed one of them, rest of them fled, and could not even collect their ‘chappals’. But police did not say anything when these kids started begging at Ridge. The cops did not interfere then. I am confused what was the motive of doing that. I don’t know, may be, they were adding ugliness to the beautiful Ridge, may they are little thieve? But, still that was really harsh to push them like that. Rest, I won’t comment regarding the legal orders!
