Woman, 40, Beats Up Teen Girl Who Called Her ‘Auntie’ in India
A 40-year-old woman in India attacked a 19-year-old girl for calling her “auntie” earlier this month.
The incident, caught in a now-viral video, took place at a local market in Etah, state of Uttar Pradesh on Nov. 2, according to India.com.
According to police, the teen was trying to make her way through the shopping crowd when she came across the middle-aged woman and told her, “Excuse me, auntie.”
Apparently, this sent the latter into an outburst, scolding the girl and slapping her face when questioned about her response.
In the video, three women can be seen ganging up on the girl, while a female police officer steps in to break the scuffle.
Shortly after, both parties were brought to the police station, where they reportedly settled the matter among themselves.
“The teenager had called the woman ‘aunt’, after which she burst into an outrage and beat up the girl. The girl also raised hands,” station house officer Kanchan Katiyar said, according to Times of India.
“Both the girl and the woman belonged to well-to-do families. No formal complaint was received.”
