BJP's woman leader assaulted in posh Delhi locality

New Delhi, April 5,2013, (IANS) :

A woman leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has alleged that she was assaulted by a gang of drunk men in a posh locality of south Delhi late Thursday.

BJP's national general secretary Vani Tripathi said she was assaulted by five men, who were driving a Scorpio car, near Savitri cinema in Greater Kailash (GK), a posh locality in south Delhi.

"I was coming back after a meeting in Vasant Vihar around 9.30 p.m. when my car was hit by a Scorpio car in GK," Tripathi told IANS.

"They (the five men) were all drunk. My car was damaged and even the tyres burst. They then tried to pull me out of the car," she said.


Tripathi said her driver showed courage and pushed them away.

"My driver locked me inside the car and countered them. I called the police but their arrival got delayed because of the traffic," she added.

"There were cars plying on the road, but no one stopped to help. I fear what would have happened if my driver was not present."

The hooligans escaped before the police arrived. Later, a case was registered and the police started an investigation.
