The video that has taken the internet by storm shows a boy and a girl having an argument inside a Delhi metro train. The argument finishes with the girl slapping the boy and this left the commuters shocked.
The boy and a girl can be seen fighting over the price of a t-shirt. The girl claims that she bought a t-shirt from Zara for Rs 1000, but the boy disagrees saying that it could not be more than Rs 150. The girl gets irritated with this and hits the boy in anger. The boy in turn gives a warning, saying that they are in a public place, but even then the girl does not shy away from raising her hand. After a while, the boy also slaps the girl.
