According to him, the woman had suddenly stopped her TATA Indica vehicle, walked up and started hitting him.The soldier did not resist and just kept asking her the reason.

Subsequently, the driver stopped the truck. But instead the woman allegedly held the collar of the jawan, abused him and slapped him. She apparently blamed the constable for being an Army personnel after which he came back to the truck and sat at the driver's seat. However, the Army officer had asked his colleague to do a video recording of the incident. She is living with her parents in Gurugram.

The army then reported the incident to the Delhi Police, who arrested her on charges of "causing hurt to deter a public servant".
