At least three Nigerian nationals were injured following a clash at a private hospital in south Delhi on Saturday. According to the police, the fight ensued after a group of three-four Nigerians brought an injured woman to Swan Neelu Angel’s Hospital in Saket for treatment. Another group arrived and a fight ensued between the two parties.

They allegedly attacked each other with wooden sticks and vandalised hospital furniture and window panes. The incident was recorded on a CCTV camera installed inside the hospital.

A senior police official said people involved in the incident were at a party in Malviya Nagar during which one of their woman friends got injured and was brought to the hospital. He said the accused were not wielding swords as reported earlier.

Police has registered a case of rioting against 15 persons and all the culprits have been identified.

Ishwar Singh, deputy commissioner of police (DCP), south district said all accused would be arrested soon. “The two groups clashed on Saturday inside the hospital premises. People involved in the incident have been indentified,” he said.

When Hindustan Times sought response from the hospital authority, it refused to divulge more details about the incident. “An FIR case has been registered. For more information, you can contact the police,” a representative of the hospital said.
