A video of a woman harassing girls in a mall in India went viral on social media. The woman ordered seven men in a mall to rape a group of women as a punishment for wearing miniskirts in public place. The woman now identified as Soma Chakraborty has apologized on her Facebook and Instagram account.

The incident occurred in Gurugram, Haryana, India. The girls soon confronted the woman and demanded her to apologize and threatened to make the woman “go viral online” if she doesn’t.

Upon being followed by the girls, the woman asked the staff to call the Police. Another middle-aged woman joined in who protested against the woman and supported the girls. She stated that it was their “right to wear whatever they wanted”.

However, the woman did not apologize and dared the girls to post the video online. Towards the end of the clip, she requested the parents of the girls to “control” them. Shivani Gupta, one of the girls harassed later posted the video online with a caption explaining the incident.

In her post, Gupta wrote: “This middle-aged woman you’ll see in the video addressed seven men at the restaurant to rape us because she felt we deserved it for wearing short clothes and bashing her unsolicited opinion.”

“Our instinct was to turn away from the drama but supported by our colleagues, we took her on at a shopping centre, nearby. We gave her the chance to apologise, to no avail, of course. Nothing moved the needle for her, not even another woman who learned the story on the spot and implored the ghastly woman to apologise,” she added.
