On Saturday, the duo paused their walk from Jaipur to Gurugram to take a glance at the vintage view opposite Manesar’s government polytechnic college at around 4.4O pm. She waited to capture the scenic beauty and his colleague to show his college to her which was near-by and then they realized that few men were taking pictures and videos which made the two of them objectionable. When the lady opposed them, they started touching her in an unacceptable and absurd manner and thrashed the man away.
“I took a picture of the landscape and sent it to my family. Then these men came there. I first thought they were local guards but I found one of them making a video of us. I objected and they started manhandling us and touching me objectionably,” the woman said to the police, as reported by the Times Of India.
