A woman was mercilessly beaten at a town in Mainapuri of Uttar Pradesh after she lashed out at two for allegedly groping her. The shocking incident happened in a market in Mainapuri, the home town of Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav on Monday.
The mother of two was beaten with a stick by a group of people in front of her husband and children. The husband of the woman was also beaten by the group.
The video of the incident shows people standing and looking at the incident without even trying to help the woman and her daughter while being beaten up.
"I will shoot myself if those two aren't caught and arrested," the woman told a police officer who reached at the spot.
The UP police has started looking into the case and one of the assaulters has been arrested.

Meanwhile, the opposition parties have embarked on using the video as a proof against the Akhilesh Yadav government.
There is a complete breakdown of law and order. The chief minister can launch as many new schemes as he wants, but till the police and people are scared of unruly elements who have state protection, nothing will workVijay Bahadur Pathak, a senior BJP leader in UP
