In his twitter message, Singh says that the attackers raised slogans like ‘Kashmiri terrorists go back.’ He also added that the Delhi Police has started a probe.

There are conflicting reports about the incident that she was attacked because of her faith while in another version says she was reportedly attacked because of her being a Kashmiri.
The victim has been living in the area for last ten years. Bilal Hussain, who knows the victim, in his complaint to the police has said that they were beaten up because they are Kashmiris. Hussain has named a few people living in the area in his complaint.
The police is looking into the matter.
