India: Delhi lawyer faces brutal attack by neighbours for efforts against illegal encroachment

April 14, 2017

A woman lawyer was subjected to brutal beating by a mother-daughter duo in Delhi’s Rohini area for her efforts against illegal encroachment.

In a video which has surfaced online after the incident, there is a full account of the physical abuse of the advocate, Anu Jain, by the two women who are her neighbours.

A report by The Logical Indian details the circumstances under which the incident came to pass. The woman in question is a lawyer who had petitioned the Delhi High Court against illegal encroachments by her neighbours on public property. The Court had ordered demolition of the encroachments when the two neighbours decided to take matters into their own hands and assaulted Jain using iron rods.

The video of the assault was recorded by Jain’s 12 year-old son.

The report also mentions that an FIR against the perpetrators of the alleged crime has been lodged in the local police station.
