NEW DELHI:A woman caught on camera slapping a soldier relentlessly, without facing any resistance at
all, was arrested today after the army reported her to the Delhi Police. She was released within hours
after a judge granted her bail.
In the mobile video taken by a witness last Saturday in south Delhi’s Vasant Kunj, 44-year-old Smriti
Kalra is seen planting several blows on the jawan before walking angrily towards her car. The soldier
seems to be trying to reason with her while fending off the assault.
Ms Kalra, who lives in Gurgaon, had stopped her Tata Indica car in front of an army truck ferrying
soldiers. Though it appeared to be a case of road rage, there was no collision or any obvious
provocation for the attack.
Ms Kalra, a divorcee, has been charged with “causing hurt to deter a public servant”. She has also
been accused of obstructing and assaulting a public servant on duty and “wrongful restraint”. Her car
has been seized by the police.
For assaulting an unresisting soldier, the woman was skewered on social media.
The soldier was quoted in some media reports as saying she “suddenly” stopped the car, walked up and
starting hitting him.
