In the video, a woman is seen walking towards her house around 2:40 AM and is about 50 metres away from her residence when two bike borne brutes surround her on the bike.

Before she could even comprehend what was happening, one of the men gets down from the bike and heads towards her and forcibly hugs her.

He then goes on to kiss her forcibly and even as the victim tries to free herself from the grip of the attacker.

The man then drags her towards the bike as the victim punches the attacker.

Two-three other men are seen standing at the end of the lane but don’t make any attempt to help the victim.
