15-year-old Afghan girl complains of molestation
A 15-year-old Afghan national who is residing with her mother in South-east Delhi’s Nizzamudin area has filed a molestation complaint against three men of her locality. She has also alleged that one of the accused has uploaded her photograph with him in their good times on a social networking site.
The incident was reported to police few days ago when the victim’s mother approached the police station alleging molestation with her daughter.
Based on her allegation that was later confirmed by her daughter, a case under the relevant sections was registered at Nizamuddin police station. However, no arrests have been made as yet.
According to the police, victim’s mother is working in the city as a translator and is helping the Afghan nationals coming to the city for their treatments by translating language.
Her daughter used to study in a school in South-east Delhi but fearing harassment and eve-teasing by three men, she quit her studies.
However, the police have assured her safety and asked her to resume her studies by going to school daily.
Meanwhile, police have identified the accused and are likely to arrest all three of them. Further investigation is underway, police said.
