Story highlights

The Jammu and Kashmir chief minister urged her Delhi counterpart to maintain the confidence and safety of Kashmiris in the national capital

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today spoke to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over the alleged assault on a group of Kashmiris in New Delhi recently. 

The Jammu and Kashmir chief minister urged her Delhi counterpart to maintain the confidence and safety of Kashmiris in the national capital.

"Mehbooba Mufti asked Arvind Kejriwal to ensure and maintain the confidence and safety of students, businessmen, employees, particularly women from the state so that they do not feel inconvenienced during their stay in the national capital," an official spokesman said.

A mob allegedly thrashed a group of people in southeast Delhi's Sunlight Colony on May 10. 

Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik, however, informed Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba today that the alleged thrashing of the group had nothing to do with their origin. 

He said the incident was a local issue, triggered by a dispute over feeding stray dogs.
