Delhi road brawl: 7 men held on assault chargesPolice said the woman’s family suspected someone from the same locality behind her murder. Based on the information, police started making queries and zeroed down on Ansari. Further, they found an eyewitness, who saw Ansari carrying a sack on a scooter.

Seven men were arrested from northwest Delhi’s Shakurpur area for allegedly assaulting each other and injuring two passers-by, police said Saturday. While locals alleged the men were involved in stone-pelting and spreading communal hatred, senior Delhi Police officers denied the allegations saying it was a fight over a petty issue.
