A 15 year old girl named Kusum Kumari while returning to her home after attending her tuition classes was attacked by men on bike who wanted to steal her phone. All these snatchers were armed with sharp edged weapons but this brave teenager fought them without any fear at Deen Dayal Upadhyay Nagar near Jalandhar-Kapurthala road.
Any person of ordinary prudence would have preferred giving up the belongings and running away, considering the well equipped bikers who could cause great harm. Kusum however, didn’t panick; nor did she leave the site. A nearby building’s CCTV camera footage revealed that kusum was holding onto one of the guy while being attacked with a sharp object and finally managed to pull one guy off the bike. A little later a person passing by approached her and helped her while the other man on the bike managed to flee away.
“I was going home when two bike-borne men attempted to snatch my mobile phone. The accused sitting on the pillion seat grabbed my hand and took my phone,” Kumari stated when being interviewed. “However, I resisted and held his hand. Following which I followed them on their bike and grabbed the pillion rider’s t-shirt. He later hit me and attacked my wrist with a datar. But I continued to follow him and later dragged him from his bike. A few minutes later passersby rescued me and held the snatcher. I got my phone later,” she said.
