A 19-year-old German national, who is on his second visit to India, was stabbed and robbed by two men near Kashmere Gate in north Delhi on Friday, police said on Saturday.
According to police, Benjamin Scolt was returning from Chandni Chowk in a rickshaw on Friday night when he was attacked at around 11pm.
A bleeding Scolt tried fleeing towards the Geeta Colony flyover and was spotted by locals who rushed him to a nearby hospital.
Deputy commissioner of police (North) Jatin Narwal said they have registered a case at the Kotwali police station and identified the two men. “We will nab the accused,” Narwal said.
Police have informed the German embassy and are probing if the rickshaw puller was involved in other such cases.
Delhi is among the most unsafe places for foreigners in India with 147 cases of heinous crimes registered in 2015 that accounted for more than 40% of the total crimes against foreigners in the country, according to National Crime Record Bureau.
