A 23-year-old woman sustained severe head injuries after she was allegedly hit with a beer bottle following a heated argument between two groups outside her residence in southeast Delhi’s Greater Kailash area, police said today.
The victim, a mass communication student, got four stitches on her head.
A case of criminal assault and outraging modesty of a woman has been registered in connection with the incident but no person has been arrested yet, police said.
In her complaint, the woman told police that the incident took place in the wee hours yesterday.
She and two of her friends, one female and the other a male, had just returned home from a party and went downstairs to the parking area again to fetch a mobile phone from their car.
They came across the other group, comprising three males and two females, who had also parked their car nearby.
One of the members of the other group allegedly passed an objectionable remark on the complainant, following which a fight broke out between two groups, the complaint said.
The accused had also returned from a pub in Greater Kailash area and claimed that they were not consuming alcohol on the road, police added.
“The accused persons have been identified. Further action will be taken as per law,” police said.
One woman and a male from the accused group also approached police this evening and they claimed that the fight started only after the complainant’s male friend passed an objectionable remark on her, police said.
The case is being probed from all angles, police added.
