Hooligans go hand in hand with Holi. An incident which took place recently in Delhi supports this statement.

The matter has reached the police and they are trying to find out the girl who claimed this so that investigation on this matter can be started soon.
The police stated that no formal complaint has been filed yet regarding this event. The girl has posted on Instagram on February 24, 2018, that she was out for lunch with her friend in Amar Colony Market in a café and while she was returning back and was on her way to take an auto, a balloon filled with liquid hit her in the hip and drenched her clothes.

The girl belongs to Northeast. She stated that she been in Delhi for 7 months now and there have been several incidents of men touching her and tagging it as an accidental touch. Sometimes she had been stroked inappropriately. She has suffered because many times she has been called out names that are derogatory.
