A labourer has been arrested after a 26-year-old woman advocate alleged that a man attempted to rape her inside a park in southeast Delhi.
Sharing her ordeal in a series of Facebook posts, the woman said she was walking in the lane of Kailash Hills towards Central Park in Amar Colony last Thursday.
“Suddenly I felt someone holding me and pulling me inside a park. This park is not easy to enter as it has a two fenced door… In a few seconds i was inside the park and this man was holding my waist approaching me for some sexual act. I tried to take his hands off and smacked his face hard,” she said in the post.
The advocate said when she tried to catch hold of the accused and hit him, he hit her back and managed to flee by climbing up the wall.
The man was arrested the same day after the woman accompanied a police officer to the park, where the accused was spotted sitting. The accused is a 30-year-old labourer, who resides in the jhuggis nearby.
