Pune, Aug 21 (IANS) A Pune woman, described as mentally ill and disturbed repeatedly rammed her vehicle into a parked Nano car, created a ruckus and threatened to disrobe herself outside a quiet residential complex here on Tuesday, the police said on Wednesday.

According to CCTV footage, which has gone viral on social media, she rammed her vehicle into the a Nano car, which was bloking her way to the society and in a fit of rage. Later, she repeatedly (as many as 8 times) rammed it.
