New Delhi: A schoolgirl was allegedly thrashed by a female outside a school in north Delhi, a police official said on Friday March 4.

“Two girls, who were studying in the same school, had minor altercation over some issue after which one among them informed her brother about it,” the official posted at the Burari police station told IANS.
The official said that the alleged brother on March 2 came outside the school along with his friends that also included females and in a bid to “teach a lesson” to the victim girl, he directed one of his female friends to bully her.

It was officially learnt that barring two men, all the accused involved in the incident were minors. So far the police have not detained any accused person in the case. “Further investigation is in progress,” the official added.
