DEHLI: WOMEN SHOULD BE CAREFUL

Delhi police on Thursday said that they had held three suspects for a horrible crime last week, in which a 30-year-old call center worker from India’s northeastern state of Mizoram was abducted and sexually assaulted by a group of men.

But Madhu Chandra, spokesman of the Northeast Support Center, said students and working women from India’s northeastern states still feel uneasy.
