An apex court lawyer, Aman Pawar, and legal affairs in-charge of the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee was allegedly “manhandled” in south Delhi’s Shahpur Jat after he tried to stop five youths, who were drinking in public and eve teasing women.
Police said the accused were sitting in two cars at Shahpur Jat and consuming alcohol. “After misbehaving with the complainant, Aman Pawar, the accused sped off. Before escaping, they also robbed Pawar of his watch and Rs 2,500. A case of robbery has been registered at Hauz Khas police station, but no arrest has been made yet,” a senior police officer said.
The incident took place on 29th of January. According to the Police, Pawar found two cars playing loud music outside his house around 8:20. He then went towards the cars. Pawar told police that he requested them to leave the spot, but the accused got angry and verbally started to abuse him. “One of the accused threw a glass at him, while others came out of their car. They caught hold of him and manhandled him. One of them forcefully took his watch and the money from his pocket. Seeing the commotion, locals came to help Pawar, prompting the accused to flee. Pawar tried to stop them but they almost ran him over,” an officer said.
