Caught On CCTV: Delhi Woman Slapped Repeatedly During Rent Altercation

According to the police, the two were having a fight over a stall that the accused man had rented to the woman’s family.

A woman was brutally assaulted along with her minor son by a man during an argument in Mangolpuri in North West Delhi. The incident – reported to have taken place on July 16 – was captured by a CCTV mounted on top of a building in the area

The footage shows the man slapping the woman repeatedly as she confronts him at a narrow lane in the area. He is also seen slapping her minor son as he tries to intervene.

Another woman, presumably a family member of the woman, is also seen being hit with a stick as she tries to intervene, the video shows.

As the fight drags further, the woman is seen throwing a concrete slab at him, which he evades. Infuriated by the woman’s attempt to hurt him, the man is then seen charging at her and beating her up with the wooden stick.



‘It was magical…asked how they could get tomatoes’: Women from Sonipat village recall visit to Sonia Gandhi’s home

Around 30-odd women labourers from Madina village return from Delhi visit with tales of eating ‘the best food’, meeting a ‘humble’ Rahul Gandhi and relishing a ‘once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity’.


Watching herself in a video with Congress leaders Sonia and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra at the former’s home in Delhi, Balla cannot stop beaming. On the evening of July 13, when she got a call about the visit from the office of Baroda MLA Induraj Narwal, Balla was recovering from a cataract surgery. But that didn’t stop the 55-year-old from Haryana’s Sonipat from travelling to Delhi, around 110 km away from her home, wearing a dashing green salwar kameez that she had only worn once before.

“We ate the best food there, and so many dishes that I couldn’t keep count. I didn’t even know the names of more than half of them,” says Balla, who was among the 30-odd women labourers from Madina village who visited Sonia Gandhi’s home in Delhi on July 14 following a remark made by Rahul Gandhi when he visited their village. “I was so excited because Rahul Gandhi arranged my surgery, and I had to thank him in person,” she adds.
