German teenager robbed and attacked in Delhi, accused absconding

In yet another attack on a foriegn national in India, a German teenager was attacked by a sharp weapon in the Geeta Colony area of the national capital on Friday night, according to ANI. 

The 19-year-old, identified as Benjamin Scolt, took an auto rickshaw from Delhi's Chandai Chowk area but the auto driver apparently asked another man to sit in the rickshaw along with Scolt and the duo later attacked him and robbed him of his cash.

Meanwhile, External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj took cognizance of the incident and tweeted that she had sought a report on the issue and asked the Delhi government to provide him with medical assistance.
