Vij took to Twitter to share a video of the car's number plate. She also tagged the Mumbai Police to help her track down the man. The Mumbai Police was swift to respond and asked her to visit the nearest station to lodge a complaint.

Vij mentioned in her tweet that the man was accompanied by his wife, who also got aggressive. So far, there aren't many developments in the case and more details are yet to be revealed.
