In a courageous act, a woman in Uttar Pradesh’s Lucknow thrashed two men who were allegedly eve-teasing and chasing her from a long distance. The bike-borne men allegedly followed woman and made lewd remarks while she was riding a scooter, CNN-News 18 reported. As per the report, the lady borrowed a stick from a security guard and thrashed the alleged eve-teasers herself as no passerby offered help. Ironically, the place where the shocking incident took place is known as 1090 crossing, the office of Women Police helpline. As seen in the video, the woman who is wearing a cream colour coat and blue denim, is thrashing more than one man with a stick. A lot of people, who are acting as mere on-lookers, are offering no help to the lady. However, another woman is seen consoling the girl as she is furiously taking the harassers into account.
