In yet another case of robbery, a woman fell off a flyover when two men snatched her bag after assaulting her. The incident happened in East Delhi. Madhumita (27) is a call center employee in Laxmi Nagar and had just started climbing the flyover when she was attacked.

She fell from a height of 8 feet but her condition is said to be stable.

Police said the incident happened on Karkari More flyover around 9:30pm on Saturday. The woman was going home when two men on a motorcycle approached her.

She is in a state of shock but is all right," said IB Rani, DCP (East). The police said they have put in barricades in the area and are checking all the motorcycles. A case has been registered.
