Auto-rikshaw driver attacked

When an autorickshaw driver from Parpunja received a missed call on his mobile phone he thought it was from a customer. He called back the number. It happened to be a girl’s number. He talked to her and went to her house. But he was followed by another autorickshaw driver who had become suspicious since the girl belonged to a different religious community. As soon as the first autorickshaw driver reached the girl’s place the driver of the second one assaulted him and went and lodged a complaint with the police. However as there was no complaint from the girl the police took both drivers into custody and released them shortly afterwards with a warning. No case has been registered
