At doing this, the other man sitting with him pushed my chair very aggressively, to which I went flying ahead.”One of the women opened up about the incident on Facebook
The women claimed that the situation soon blew up because of the men’s rowdy behavior.
“We got up immediately to correct him, as to why and how could he push someone’s chair? To which started yelling on top of his voice. He turned around said a couple of things back and forth and the most obscene and obnoxious thing by spreading his legs and sitting inappropriately on the chair, pointing to his male part, said the following: ‘come and B*** me, f*** you’. And soon after, he lifted his right leg and put it up towards my face and and stated ‘Lick my foot, you look like my maid and you all are south Delhi aunties’. This incident shook us immensely, to which the manager sent them to the first floor of the restaurant to calm him down.”One of the women opened up about the incident on Facebook

“Not one man had the balls to get up and even ask us as to what happened, they all sat calmly and watched the show, except for 2 girls next to our table who supported us. And we call ourselves an educated city!!! [sic]”One of the women opened up about the incident on Facebook.
