New Delhi: A 37-year-old woman succumbed after being thrashed by locals when she, along with her associate, was caught red-handed while allegedly stealing at a godown of pressure cooker in outer north Delhi’s Samaipur Badli area.

The incident took place on Wednesday when a group of around seven-eight women entered into the godown after breaking the wall.

 

While they were engaged in the process of stealing items, two women were caught by the labourers present at the spot following which a scuffle broke out between them, police said.
