A 20-year-old woman in Delhi was assaulted by his 17-year-old brother after

accused brother locked her sister in the house and refused to provide any medical help despite her injuries. The girl was later admitted in the Safdarjung Hospital where she is being treated. Her condition remained unfavourable and critical and she was facing the state of trauma. “We are waiting for her swelling to subside so that we can properly analyse the nature of damage happen to her eye” Doctor said.
