“The man riding pillion grabbed my hand and took my phone. I resisted and held his hand after 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 sharp object,” said the girl to the news reporter.

The girl, now injured, did not back down. She ran after the bike and dragged the pillion rider, who snatched her mobile phone, off it.
Passersby helped the teen sometime later and got hold of the accused and handed him over to the police. Ms. Kumari got back her phone soon after. The teen has been admitted to a hospital.
