New Delhi: In yet another incident of violence against Northeastern people in the national capital, a girl and her cousin brother hailing from Manipur were allegedly attacked by two men who thrashed them, hurled racial abuses and molested the girl last night.

According to the police, both the assailants, identified as Kamal, a motor mechanic and his associate Manpreet have been arrested.

The victims hail from Ukhrul district of Manipur. The 24-year-old-woman is pursuing B. Ed from Delhi University.

The incident took place at around 10 PM last night in Vijay Nagar area which is close to Delhi University's north campus when the boy was going to drop his cousin sister to her PG after having dinner at his place.

As they reached near a park at Buddha Colony, they saw a man urinating on roadside. Seeing the girl, he turned towards her and started making lewd gestures and comments.

"They first ignored him but as he continued and went on to call them 'chinki' 'and nepali', the boy confronted him. Kamal and Manpreet, who were in an inebriated state, thrashed the boy black and blue, when the girl tried to intervene, they beat her, tore her dress and molested her and even tried to rape her in front of her brother," said a friend of the duo.
