Three schoolgirls were reportedly injured after some boys attacked them outside a government school in Shalimar Bagh in northwest Delhi, police said. One of the girls suffered a leg fracture.
The boys — allegedly from Rajkiya Bal Vidyalaya— were reportedly the brothers of a rival group of schoolgirls with whom the injured girls had had a fight last week, police said.
Monday’s fight was apparently the fallout of a fight between two groups of students last week, police said.
A student who was injured claimed that one of the boys rode his motorcycle around them and rode the bike over her right foot, leading to the fracture.
The incident took place outside Rajkiya Uchatar Balika Vidyalya in Shalimar Bagh around 2 p.m. on Monday.
A group of girls accompanied by some boys, who are believed to be their brothers, allegedly attacked the girls.
Police said the teenage boys beat up the girls in front of people and ran away.
“Monday’s fight was the fallout of a scuffle some Class 10 girl students had with Class 11 girls. Two girls suffered minor injuries. One of them suffered a fracture. They have been taken to Babu Jagjivan Ram Hospital,” a senior police officer said on the condition of anonymity.
Police said they were verifying the claims and a case will be registered under relevant sections after that. Police said action will be taken after recording the statements of the injured .
