A 17-year-old boy was beaten up and stabbed for allegedly opposing three boys who were stalking his sister and passing "indecent remarks" on her in southeast Delhi's Kalkaji area, police said today.
The incident took place near a school in Kalkaji on Friday, they said.
The injured boy, a resident Kalkaji, was taken to AIIMS Trauma Centre, police said.
In her statement, the boy's sister said that on Friday, while she was with her brother, three boys followed her and passed indecent remarks on her. When her brother objected to it, they all started beating him and one of them stabbed him in the abdomen and ran away from the spot, a senior police officer said.
He was taken to AIIMS Trauma centre and is still unfit for recording his statement, the senior cop said.
