Registering a cross-case in an incident where a local resident, Aman Arora, 18, was thrashed by relatives of a girl on September 9 (Monday) in Chandigarh, police have booked five of the assailants. The accused — Gulshan Verma alias Rinku; Anshu Verma; Monica Verma; Ravi Jindal and Sonu — have been booked for attempt to murder and wrongful confinement. The girl and Aman, along with friends, had gone to Chandigarh to celebrate his birthday.
