Sheetal Sharma (25) allegedly hit 26 year-old Nitish repeatedly with an iron rod following a road rage incident near Tribune Chowk in Chandigarh on Tuesday evening. Nitish was injured in the incident and the altercation led a traffic jam. The victim was driving a Santro along a slip road when the girl reportedly driving in reverse in a rash manner, banged into his car.

Police rushed to the spot and seized both the vehicles. They later recorded the statement of the victim and registered a case against Sheetal Sharma under Sections 308, 323, 341 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code. The girl was arrested and sent for medical examination.
