The video demonstrates Shanmugavel sitting in the verandah of his house when all of a sudden a burglar, who crawls up behind him, tosses a bit of fabric around the old man and attempts to strangulate him. As Shanmugavel battles back and attempts to get up, another robber enters the scene with a knife.
Hearing her significant other’s shout, the spouse comes coming up short on the house and quickly begins throwing her shoe chappals at the burglars. While attempting to battle back, Shanmugavel tumbles down from his seat, yet figures out how to get up and keeps fighting back. The two at that point begin throwing plastic chairs at the two thieves, who are seen escaping the scene.
The police have registered an F*R against the thieves under Section 233 and segment 394 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
