“We have just been beaten up while we were catching dogs. Someone came and spoke to our staff badly. We are supposed to shut up and take this nonsense all the time. When we decided to stand up, and for our voices to be heard, this is what is done to us,” Ayesha said in a video which got shared on social media. She was visibly wounded in the video, which drew severe reactions from social media users.
Delhi Commission for Women chairperson Swati Maliwal took note of the video and said her team was in touch with her. “It’s so shameful that a girl who has been working for the voiceless creatures of god was assaulted so brutally,” Swati Maliwal wrote.
Police said local people were enquiring as it was a late night. A scuffle took place between the volunteers and the locals and then some of the locals got injured by the car of the volunteers.
