NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court has ordered a group of dairy owners to supply 100 litres of milk everyday to destitute women and children at Nirmal Chhaya for the next 15 days, as punishment in a case of assault. Public prosecutor Navin Sharma urged the court to impose heavy cost on the petitioners as they were accused not just of beating up the neighbours but also of molesting and misbehaving with the women of the household. 

The superintendent of the welfare home will ensure purity of the milk supplied on a daily basis. According to the prosecution, the neighbour, Vinay, lodged a complaint with the Roop Nagar police in November last year. He named Teka Singh and his accomplices of injuring him and his family members, and molesting women. The police registered an FIR on charges of causing hurt and outraging modesty of women. However, when tempers cooled, Vinay and his family members decided to withdraw the case as Singh and his relatives lived nearby and were acquaintances, aside from the dispute.
