Agra woman takes on SP leader
Agra: A young woman took on a Samajwadi party leader here when his motorcade brushed past her two-wheeler and one of the guards, she claimed, winked at her.
The woman was on her way to see a doctor on Sunday when local Samajwadi party leader Abhinav Sharma’s car grazed past her vehicle, knocking her down.
Sharma had lost the 2012 assembly polls and runs a public school in Agra.
According to the woman, one of the guards in the car passed lewd comments and winked at her. Another snatched her mobile phone and threw it on the ground as she took pictures of them.
Infuriated, the woman climbed on to Sharma’s car, plucked out the party flag from the bonnet and smashed the car’s windshield, videos which went viral yesterday showed. Hundreds of people cheered her.
The fracas stunned the politician and his guards.
The high-pitched drama continued for nearly an hour as the crowd shouted slogans and blocked the traffic. Police had to intervene.
After the woman refused to go to the police station to file a complaint, a deal was brokered. Sharma reportedly paid for her damaged mobile phone and offered an apology, informed sources said.
Police officer Swatantra Kumar said it was not a case of harassment but a dispute over not giving side.
