Kashmiri Woman Thrashed Over Feeding Stray Dogs In Delhi

Recently, a Kashmiri woman was allegedly assaulted with sticks by residents of a DDA colony in Delhi’s Siddharth Extension after an argument over feeding street dogs on the road.

An FIR was lodged

An FIR has been registered based on the complaint by the woman. In the complaint, the woman  alleged that during the attack, some of the residents pitched anti-Kashmiri abuses to her.

However, it was found that the woman and the Resident welfare association

(RWA) members had filed 52 complaints against each other in last  five years.

The incident took place at Siddharth Extension DDA colony on Thursday night (3 May 2018)  when the woman stepped out to feed the street dogs.

A relative of the woman said, “We find it normal to take care of the dogs. There are more than 30 families that take care of animals. But it was us who were targeted. The president of the RWA was present during the attack and took no steps to stop it.” said the woman’s relative.

S N Pandey, area RWA president, said, “They have been staying here for a long time, so far no one uttered a word about them. We have been asking them not feed dogs in the public places. There have been at least 10 incidents of dog bites in the past few months.”

One of the residents, Tauqeer, said a dog had bitten an elderly citizen four months back. The man was still undergoing treatment for the injuries.

“There hasn’t been any instance where these people were targeted for their religion or for being Kashmiris. The incident on Thursday too was a fall out of a number of arguments that had taken place earlier,” said Tauqeer.

In fact, it was the family that had attacked a woman from the colony and threatened her with dire consequences, after which the others grew violent, he said.

DCP (south-east) Chinmoy Biswal confirmed that an FIR has been registered under sections of molestation, assault and outraging the modesty of a woman.

Cops are, however, scanning the video and questioning some of the residents to establish the sequence of events.

The video of the assault went viral.
