Shocking footage circulating on social media shows a woman in Mumbai, India, punching an official after being fined for not wearing a mask.

According to India Today, the woman assaulted the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation official after she fined her for travelling in a rickshaw without a mask in Mumbai’s Kandivalli area.

The video shows the maskless woman riding in a rickshaw, which is stopped by the BMC official at a junction. The woman turns violent when the official asks her to pay a Rs200 fine (Dh10) and ends up assaulting her.

"The video of a woman marshal being assaulted is said to be of Kandivali. Charkop Police are investigating it," said Prashant Kamble, a BMC supervisor.

The incident comes a day after the state of Maharashtra reported more than 25,000 new Covid-19 cases for the second consecutive day on Friday.
