4 held for assaulting Kashmiri woman

NEW DELHI, May 12: The Delhi Police today arrested four men for allegedly assaulting a Kashmiri woman in southeast Delhi’s Sunlight Colony, a senior police officer said.
Earlier in the day, Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik informed Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba that the incident was a local issue, triggered by a dispute over feeding stray dogs and had nothing to do with the woman’s origin.
On Friday night, the victims, including four women, were allegedly surrounded and roughed up by a mob of around 30-40 people. A police case was registered following a complaint from one of the women. She had alleged that she was physically assaulted by the mob.
The police arrested the four men — Kalyan, a security guard, and three locals, SN Pandey, RK Chopra and Anil Lath — on the basis of CCTV footage collected from the area.
The complainant has alleged that they were targeted because of their Kashmiri origin. (PTI)
