A woman was caught on camera assaulting and beating a security guard in a society in Noida, Uttar Pradesh, in what appeared to be a clear case of classism. The woman turned out to be from a wealthy family and appeared to be drunk.
The video has since gone viral, with netizens condemning the woman for abusing her class and assaulting the security guard. News18 was unable to independently verify the veracity of the clip, which the platform cannot share due to the language used.
The woman, identified as Bhavya Roy, has been arrested and an FIR has been filed against her. “A video went viral on social media showing a woman behaving indecently towards the security guard at Jaypee Wishtown Society. After becoming aware of the video, the local police station Sector-126 has filed an FIR against the woman (Bhavya Roy),” the police said in a statement.
“After the FIR was filed, the woman was detained and further investigation into the matter is ongoing,” police said. According to the police, the woman is included in the Indian Penal Code, among others, sections 153A (acts harmful to harmony), 323 (voluntarily causing harm), 504 (deliberate insult to violate public order), 506 (criminal harassment) .
Roy was beaten by several women, including Swati Maliwal, chairman of the Delhi Commission for Women, and Shiv Sena MP Priyanka Chaturvedi.
Maliwal learned of the incident and ordered the Noida police to take strict action against the woman. The woman is said to have argued with the guards about the delay in opening the gates. “Learn to respect women,” the woman hears the guards say.
Chaturvedi tweeted: “The video of a lady using abusive and dirty language to her construction workers is disturbing. Using classist defamation and abusing people of any state is criminal and shameful, hope UP police make sure she is punished for this behavior.
The video showed Roy dragging one of the guards by the epaulettes of his uniform and punching him in the face. The video also features her insulting the Bihari community and making insulting and lewd gestures towards men.
The incident follows another similar incident in Noida, where self-proclaimed BJP leader Shrikant Tyagi was caught on video abusing and pushing a woman at a housing association. After an argument on the grounds of Grand Omaxe in Noida Sector 93B, Tyagi was arrested by the Noida Police Department for allegedly assaulting and assaulting a woman.
