New Delhi: A 14-year-old girl was allegedly beaten up by her 24-year-old neighbour here when she resisted his attempt to molest her, police said Tuesday.
The incident was reported from the city`s Nand Nagri area 8.30 pm on Monday.
The girl`s attacker identified as Vinod, 24, allegedly barged into her house and started misbehaving with her.
"When the girl resisted Vinod, she was beaten up. A case regarding the incident has been registered and hunt is now on to nab the accused," a police official said.
The girl`s father, however, claimed that police had initially refused to register a case against the attacker.
