The traffic movement on Mumbai’s Pedder Road was affected on Saturday evening due to a fight between a couple on the road. The traffic police issued a challan to the woman for abandoning her vehicle in the middle of the road, which led to traffic jam. However, no criminal offence was registered, police said.
After a video of the incident went viral on social media, police sources said the woman was chasing her husband’s Range Rover on Pedder Road. The woman’s husband allegedly had a female co-passenger in his car.
The woman, who reportedly suspected that her husband was having an affair, obstructed the Range Rover, got out of her vehicle and yelled at her husband to come out. She also climbed on the bonnet of the vehicle. When the man stepped out the car, she kicked him.
