New Delhi, March 31 (IANS) A 22-year-old woman was forced into a car and was assaulted by four men early Monday, another reminder of how unsafe the capital’s roads can be for women. The incident occurred in northwest Delhi’s Pitampura area at around 3 a.m. when the woman and a colleague were going home after a party. Both work in a call centre in Gurgaon on the outskirts of Delhi.
According to her colleague, four men who appeared to be in their 20s chased them in a Mahindra Jeep and forced them to stop.
“They immediately seized my bike key. There was a heated argument between us. They called us names and brutally assaulted both of us,” the colleague stated in his complaint to the police.
“They dragged her to their jeep. When I protested they again beat me up and fled the scene. I somehow managed to call the police.”
According to the police, the men assaulted the girl in their car before dumping her in the same area.
“We have registered a case at the Shalimar Bagh police station and teams have fanned out to arrest the assailants, who appear to be from some village,” said a police official.
