The incident took place on Kasturi Lal Anand Marg of West Patel Nagar Block-22. According to sources, the accused, along with another woman, were travelling on the scooty. The roads were congested and the cab driver couldn't make space as demanded by the woman. Enraged, she parks her vehicle on the road itself and started abusing and beating up the driver when there were protests against her parking. She was also seen screaming and shouting at some other man who was at the spot and protested against her behaviour and her thrashing the cabbie.
The video shows a crowd gathered in the area and many could be heard blaming the woman while others were recording the incident.
The incident is reminiscent of one in August where a woman in Lucknow was booked by the police after slapped the cab driver at least 20 times. She had claimed that he was driving the vehicle at a very high speed and she had narrowly skipped being run over by the car.
