Goonda Raj in Delhi: Five days after a family was allegedly assaulted by a gang of five men at a cafe in Khan Market, the husband of the woman who was hit on her face with a beer bottle, said he has not stepped out of the house since the incident.
"I have not come out of my house since the incident. My five-year-old daughter, who witnessed the whole assault, has not been able to sleep since then," he said.
The couple's nightmare began on March 8, the International Women's Day.
Speaking to Newsline, the woman's husband said he had gone to Boombox Cafe in Khan Market with his wife, sister-in-law, cousin and children for dinner.
He said his 26-year-old wife was assaulted with beer bottles by the five men.
The accused, identified as Rohit Sehgal (20), Vikash Dhawan (24), Manish (21), Paramjeet (19) and Kamaldeep (23), were arrested from the spot after a PCR call was made by the woman's husband. While Sehgal's father is a clerk in the CBI, Dhawam and Manish are businessmen. Paramjeet and Kamaldeep's father work as property dealers.
"Nine of us had gone for dinner and took a table on the second floor. The place was crowded. Five men were sitting on the table opposite ours. One of them was constantly staring at my wife and cousin. This made the women uncomfortable, but we chose to ignore it as we did not want to create a scene."
He said the accused then started to pass lewd comments on the women. He alleged that the matter escalated after one of the accused threw a paper chit at his cousin and asked her to join him. "We immediately asked them to behave. Those sitting at other tables also supported us. The men became quiet for sometime, but, after a few minutes, they again started to pass lewd comments. It was then that my wife and sister-in-law got up and slapped them," he said.
