A video of a woman thrashing a bank manager for allegedly demanding sexual favours in Karnataka’s Davanagere city has gone viral. The bank manager allegedly asked the woman for sexual favours in lieu of passing her loan, reported ANI on Tuesday. In the 50-second long video, the woman can be heard asking the man to come to the police station while thrashing him with a stick.

She can be seen holding the man by his collar and later hitting him with her slipper. The incident took place on Monday and it went viral as soon as it was shared on social media. Many people also linked the incident with the #MeToo movement.

Over the past few days, the #MeToo campaign has gained pace in the country after a series of sexual harassment allegations were made by women against men in power.

Meanwhile, the services of the employee were sacked by the Dewan Housing Finance Corporation Ltd (DFHL) today as the company termed the incident as unfortunate, ANI reported. “In the light of the unfortunate incident at Karnataka’s Davanagere, we have terminated the services of the employee with immediate effect. DHFL strongly promotes & cultivates an environment that is conducive for the safety of women,” the corporation was quoted as saying by the news agency.
