Woman dies after being beaten up by locals

New Delhi, March 14

A woman died after being allegedly beaten up by locals when she, along with another woman, was caught while stealing at a manufacturing unit of pressure cookers in the Samaipur Badli area, a police official said.

The incident took place on Wednesday, when a group of around seven-eight women entered the factory's godown after breaking its wall. While they were trying to allegedly steal items, the women were caught by labourers.

While the other women managed to flee, the two women were allegedly beaten up by the labourers and a few locals, the official said.

When police reached the spot, one of the two women complained of uneasiness. They were then taken to Baba Saheb Ambedkar Hospital and after primary treatment were discharged, the DCP (outer north), said.

The two women were officially arrested. After the magistrate ordered their judicial custody, the woman was again taken to the hospital as she complained of uneasiness. She succumbed there during treatment. — TNS
