Violence against women is on a rise in India and in most cases, the perpetrators are men.

On April 11, Anu Jain, a Delhi High Court advocate was brutally beaten with iron rods. She kept screaming for help, but no one came to her aid. The assault had left grievous marks on her entire body.





However, the appalling aspect of the attack is that the perpetrators, in this case, were two women – a mother and her teenaged daughter.

On April 12, Kundan Srivastava, uploaded pictures and videos of the assault of a Facebook post, where the women can be seen brutally assaulting the advocate.

The attack took place because Anu Jain had filed a petition with the Delhi High Court against her neighbours’ illegal encroachment on public property. The court directed that all encroachment be demolished.

Anu Jain was beaten in front of her adolescent son who tried to help but was also attacked by the woman’s 18-year old daughter, Preity Tomar. As a helpless child, he recorded a video of the same and called a local police station for help.

An FIR has been lodged in the North Rohini, Delhi police station.


The Logical Indian contacted the police station for their comment on the case and if any action has been taken against the two women, however, the police refused to comment and hung up.

We strongly condemn the assault on Anu Jain. She was only trying to follow the law by petitioning against illegal encroachment upon public property. We hope that the police takes necessary actions to bring her to justice and penalise her perpetrators.
