Mumbai: Woman thrashes railway staffer for stealing her mobile phone

A video of a woman thrashing a railway staffer has gone viral. The concerned lady, Nandini Belekar, had gone to purchase a railway ticket and mistakenly left her cellphone at the ticket counter of Mumbai Central railway station.

Minutes after she realised that she had left her cellphone, she went back to collect it. When she asked the railway staffer about it, he denied having seen her cellphone. As she suspected he was lying, she entered his cabin, and saw that he had the phone, and had removed the SIM card from it. Hence, she lost her temper and thrashed him.
