In a shocking incident, a national kabaddi player was allegedly manhandled by a group of boys in Kanpur for complaining against their behaviour.
On June 12, some 10-12 boys with their faces covered physically abused Dolly Singh. She received severe injuries from the assault.
Around a month back, some locals had mistreated her, for which she had lodged a complain. She said that, the boys attacked her for complaining against them.
“Last month, when I was at home in our locality Ujala Thakur and Rishi Gandhi had teased me. I resisted them and then I went back to my work. I am taking coaching at Orai. When I returned, on 15th evening they came to know I was at home. 10 to 12 men came at around 6:30 pm and thrashed me,” Dolly said.
Dolly was allegedly beaten up by a dozen men who ransacked her family’s home and shop on June 15. The assault resulted in a cracked nose besides other injuries.
“They entered and started beating me. I was beaten mercilessly and my clothes also got torn. I was hurt as well,” Dolly said.
Dolly’s father, Ashutosh Singh claims that when his daughter accompanied by her mother went to the local police station after the incident, officials at the local police station refused to file a First Information Report (FIR). They only lodged a complaint after the duo insisted.
Dolly is pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Physical Education from Bundelkhand University.
An FIR has now been filed. The attackers are missing.
