Shameful! A 33 years old woman was allegedly attacked with iron rods, dragged out of a house where she tried to seek refuge in Delhi and beaten badly by the liquor mafia. Not only this her clothes ripped apart before being paraded in the lanes of a JJ colony by a group of women in Narela on Thursday.
This woman volunteer with the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW), had been instrumental in getting a raid conducted on the sale of illicit liquor in Narela. The victim is a mother of 4 children. She alleged her attackers were women involved in the illicit liquor trade. She has been admitted to a government hospital in central Delhi after being shifted from a local one.
Police in its statement said that the victim was a member of the Nasha Mukti Panchayat in the area and had assisted them at times in curbing the sale of illegal liquor in the slums. However, the police denied that the victim was paraded with clothes off or naked. Police claimed that her clothes may have got torn in the scuffle.
An angry DCW chairperson, Swati Jaihind, took to Twitter to condemn the attack. She posted a video and also tweeted her views on the incident:
