A woman decided to take matters into her own hands when a man passed lewd and sexual comments at her in Delhi on Sunday, February 25. The woman slapped him and caught hold of his collar following which he was dragged to a nearby police station.
The incident came to light when the woman, who was walking along with a friend, was at the receiving end of four men harassing her in Gaffar market, Karol Bagh. Following this, the women decided to take an auto-rickshaw to avoid them. But to their surprise, the men had started tailing the vehicle, NDTV reported.
Furious at the lewd remarks being passed at her while being followed, the woman decided to teach the man a lesson as she got off the rickshaw and slapped him. Soon after this, a crowd gathered at the scene as she dragged him all the way to a nearby police station and filed a complaint against him.
Soon after she registered the complaint, the police arrested the two men identified as Manish and Abhishek, belonging to Charkhi Dadri area in Haryana.
