A 44-year-old woman was arrested in connection with a case of road rage in which she allegedly assaulted and abused two Army personnel in south Delhi's Vasant Kunj, the police said today. The viral video was inspected by the Delhi police and the victim was identified as Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) Mahavir Singh of the Indian Army. In his complaint, Mahavir Singh Rathore, the Army Subedar, alleged that the vehicle was being driven ahead of them by accused Smriti Kalra in a zig-zag manner.
An Army subedar was going towards Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway Station to drop off five of colleagues in a truck on September 9.
As the traffic stopped, the army jawan walked up to the woman to seek an explanation for her rash driving and refusal to give them way. "She hurled abuses at the Army", the FIR said.
In the mobile video that had gone viral on social media, 44-year-old Smriti Kalra can be seen thrashing a soldier before walking back to her vehicle.

The soldier and other soldiers are seen trying to speak to her, but to no avail. He tried to ask her about their fault but she kept abusing them.
In the video, the woman can be seen slapping the jawan. It was only after another soldier came to the rescue the woman turned back to her vehicle and left.
When the truck driver walked up to the auto and tried to reason with Kalra, she apparently held him by the collar and slapped him. The police have registered a case against her and charged her with "causing hurt to deter a public servant", "obstructing and assaulting a public servant on duty" and "wrongful restraint".
