A group of women, living at Atul Grover Road in Connaught Place were, on Saturday, reportedly attacked by guards of Indian Justice Party, headed by Udit Raj. A case has been registered at Barakhamba Police station.
“At around 10 p.m. we were going towards Tolstoy Marg when their guards started passing comments. When we objected, they threatened us and started beating us. A PCR call was made as they started attacking,” Rachna (name changed), the complainant in the case, claimed.
According to Rachna, the guards of Indian Justice Party used to harass them regularly; they filed a similar complaint two months ago.
“We don’t feel safe anymore. Two months ago, we called the PCR when the guards let their dogs on me and passed comments,” she said. The police initiated a compromise as the guards promised not to repeat it. According to her, after Saturday night’s incident, too, the police tried to downplay the issue and asked to compromise.
“The argument continued till 2.30 in the night and finally the police took our complaint. We will meet All India Women Association on Monday to discuss the safety in our area,” Rachna said.
Party leader Udit Raj defended his men and said the women attacked them. “This is gundaraj of the Residents Welfare Association (RWA) and they attacked us. We have also filed a complaint with the police,” Raj claimed.
