A woman in Madhya Pradesh’s Bhopal underwent surgery and received 118 stitches on her face after a group of men attacked her with a paper cutter and she stood up to them in their attempts to sexually assault her, reported NDTV.
The incident occurred in the TT Nagar area of Bhopal on Friday.
NDTV quoted the police noting that the woman went to the Sree Palace Hotel in TT Nagar’s Roshanpura with her husband on Friday when an altercation erupted between her and the accused over bike parking.
They made obscene comments and whistled at her, while her husband was inside the hotel. The woman confronted the accused, and also slapped one of the three men, officials said.
She then joined her husband at the hotel. When the couple came out of the hotel, the accused who were reportedly irked with the woman for standing up to them, attacked her with the paper cutter, officials said.
