Many times we see fights on the streets. Everyone starts giving their opinion about who is right or wrong. However, there are always two sides to the story. Therefore, one should not be judgemental before looking at both sides. One such incident happened at the Awadh signal in Lucknow on July 30. A Lucknow girl who was crossing the road suddenly started beating a cab driver.
Lucknow Girl Beats Cab Driver
The video has gone viral in which a girl is seen hitting and slapping a cab driver in the middle of the street in Awadh crossing Lucknow. She has blocked all other vehicles from passing and created a traffic jam. After the video went viral, the netizens were divided into two groups, and #ArrestLucknowGirl started trending on social media.
Traffic police tried to intervene in the matter. However, the girl was kept slapping and beating down the cab driver. A Twitter handle, Megh Updates, shared a video with a caption,
“Viral Video: A Girl Continuously Beating a Man (Driver of Car) at Awadh Crossing, Lucknow, UP and allegedly Damaging his Phone inspite of him asking for Reason.”
In the background, people can be heard saying, “yeh ladki badtameez hai, itte der takk koi ladka ladki ko maarta toh fir log kya karte?”
She Hit Another Man Who Tried To Save Cab Driver
When another man came forward to save the cab driver and tried to stop the woman from hitting the driver anymore, the Lucknow girl even hit him. When asked why she was beating the cab driver, the girl kept saying that his car hit her. In another tweet, one more video was added, and the caption reads,
“Even the Person who came to Save the Cab Driver was Assaulted in these updated Viral Videos. She can be heard saying the Car Hit her.”
A witness has likely recorded the video of the incident. In the video, when the girl was dragging the driver by his collar and beating him, the cab driver came in front of the camera and said, “Aap log mahila police bulaye.” Watch out for the video below.
