While the victim was on his way home from his work place Janakpuri District Centre, the two local motorcyclists stopped him and robbed his Rs. 1400 and beat him up severely. He sustained severe Back Bruises Injury. Those of the thugs committing robbery and assaults fled away immediately.

The victims could manage to come home fortunately.

Eventhough they approached the SLIC Officials, they got no help.

He was so traumatized and scared that he has already experienced these types of assaults and abuses for four times in the past.
