A 10-year-old girl was injured Sunday when she fell from a moving autorickshaw here during a scuffle between her father and four robbers travelling in the same vehicle, police said. One of the robbers was arrested.

The girl, Risha Tiwari, was going to her house in east Delhi's Kalyanpuri from Old Delhi Railway Station in the autorickshaw with her parents when the incident took place around 1.30 p.m. in east Delhi's Geeta Colony.

"Four people, including the driver, were already sitting in the autorickshaw when the victim's father Rakesh Kumar Tiwari hired it," said a police officer.

"On their way, three of the co-passengers started opening Tiwari's bags and a scuffle ensued, during which the girl fell off the vehicle," said the officer.

Some passers-by forced the driver to stop the vehicle. Driver Imran, a resident of east Delhi's Seelampur, was arrested.

He named his accomplice as Babloo, Maimen and Sarvesh.
