A woman was attacked in Delhi on Aug. 20. The assailant tried to snatch her mobile phone and even hit her when she tried to protest. But all thanks to a group of young boys, he is behind bars now. This is how they made sure he was arrested.
An isolated road, late night, and a lonely lady. It looked like a perfect scenario for a small robbery. At least that is what an assailant who tried to rob a woman in Delhi thought. But hardly did he know that he was in for a surprise.
Today, he is behind bars. All thanks to a group of boys who showed immense courage, and protected the woman.
The entire incident, which was caught on a CCTV camera, took place on Aug. 20, 2015 at around 12:30 am.
The footage shows a man following a foreigner who was talking over the phone. He followed her for some time and when she reached a quiet road, he tried to snatch her mobile phone. When she protested, he slapped, pushed and assaulted her.
When a few boys, who were playing football in the adjacent park, heard the woman’s cries, they quickly jumped the fence and chased the man.
After a long chase, the boys got hold of the man and dragged him to the spot where the incident had taken place. The footage shows the teenagers carrying the assailant with a crowd following them. A witness called the police who took the man away. He has been identified as Sooraj.
The Uzbek woman who was attacked, had come to India three months back on a business trip and was staying with a friend in Malviya Nagar. She is very scared after the incident and plans to leave India soon.
The young boys who showed immense courage and presence of mind, included Sarthak Sharma, a class XII student of LBS School R K Puram, Arun Singh Rajput, a class XII student of St Paul’s School, Japneet, a second-year-student of Shaheed Bhagat Singh College and Aayush Joshi, a class XII student.
Kudos to these young kids who not only helped someone in need, but also taught the assailant a lesson that he will never forget.
