The woman further added, “I asked him to stop his vehicle and speak with me. He stopped by and started talking abusively. My immediate response to this was me trying to take off his bike keys which is when he tried to take my hands off his bike and tried to hit me with his hand and legs and continued to use absolutely absurd and abusive language.”

PUNE: The Traffic branch of Pune city police on Tuesday issued a challan to a youth for riding without a helmet in Kalyani Nagar. His photo was posted on Facebook by a woman who had an argument with him over riding on a footpath on Monday. The post has gone viral with people sharing and commenting on it.

The woman, who works as operations lead with a private telecom company, posted, “So here is what exactly happened this afternoon of 7th Jan at Kalyani Nagar signal. Me and few of my fellow colleagues were returning to work post having lunch. While walking on the footpath which is meant for pavers, a bunch of people tried to drive from the footpath. As a person with some civic sense along with my two fellow colleagues, we denied giving way to those driving on the footpath, to which a couple of people respected and got off the footpath. But this man right here in picture continued to drive on the footpath and said 'madam ye India hai Amsterdam nahi' to which I replied 'India is India because of people like you'. He drove off showing me the middle finger. He further had to stop at a signal which is when I took this picture while he was posing proudly as if he won a trophy by driving on the footpath and showing me a middle finger.”

She further added, “I asked him to stop his vehicle and speak with me. He stopped by and started talking abusively. My immediate response to this was me trying to take off his bike keys which is when he tried to take my hands off his bike and tried to hit me with his hand and legs and continued to use absolutely absurd and abusive language.”

As several people were commenting on the issue, the man who works with a multinational bank, replied to her, “I am just waiting for the action to be taken. I am answerable to no one except law and order. This girl is taking advantage of feminism and manipulating words and making wrong use of social media platform to satisfy her ego because (I) ignored her completely in a polite and super humble way. My (female) friend (name withheld) is an eye witness of the truth of the complete cooked story. This psy***path girl has not given me access to the post as she knows she is doing wrong act else she would have kept the post open for replies to all. Last but not the least people who know me, know me well. People who don't know me can only live with perceptions created via words.”

People had also tweeted his photo to Pune traffic police. DCP (Traffic) Tejaswi Satpute said that an e-challan (Rs 500 fine) has been issued to the youth for not wearing a helmet.
