A 19-year-old German national was attacked Friday night near Kashmere Gate in New Delhi. Benjamin Scolt, a teenager from Germany, was attacked with a blade and looted of money as he was travelling from Chandni Chowk to Kashmere Gate at 10 pm. He was admitted to a hospital soon after the incident but he is out of danger. The accused is absconding.

Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj tweeted on Saturday asking for a report on the attack and has asked for the best medical treatment for the victim.

“I have asked for a report on the attack on German national in Delhi. I have asked Delhi Government to provide him best medical treatment,” she said on Twitter.
