Chin refugee family move out in fear after attacks in Delhi
17 February 2014: A Chin refugee family of four including two children have fled their rented room after attacks by a group of youths, presumably Indian, aged between 16 and 19 in Delhi, India last Friday.
The family told the Chin Human Rights Organization (CHRO) that they had to move out as a gang of three or four youths stoned their room, shouted abusive words at them, and locked their door from outside.
Their father said: “We don’t know the reason why they did this to us. There was a knock on the door in the evening and when I tried to open it, I found out it was already locked from outside.”
“I made a call to our community members and they opened it for us. Now, we are afraid to go back to our room,” added the Chin father.
According to the Chin community in Delhi, the family is currently staying at a friend’s house with the help of the community.
Last year, one of his daughters was sexually assaulted by a local Indian boy outside their rented room while she, 2, was playing on the staircase.#
