New Delhi, Apr 4 (PTI) Four persons have been arrested for allegedly attacking a couple after the woman allegedly hurled a stone at a cow in south Delhi’s Kusum Pahadi area.
The incident happened on March 31 when Jaishankar and his wife Sharmila, who live in slums in Savitri Camp, were going to a nearby toilet when a cow came running towards them, police said.
The area houses a temporary cowshed. Sharmila allegedly hurled a stone at the cow to scare it away. But within no time, some cow owners arrived there and allegedly attacked the couple, they added.
Jaishankar alleged that his brother, who intervened to save him, was also hurt in the incident. He filed a police complaint on April 1. A case was registered in Vasant Kunj (North) police station for voluntarily causing hurt and wrongful restraint.
The day after the attack on Jaishankar and his wife, Uday Chand Mahal, a driver, was also attacked.
He claimed he was attacked since he had stepped in to stop the crowd from assaulting the couple.
