The incident, which took place on Saturday evening, was recorded by some passersby on their mobile phones and its videos are making rounds on social media.
The wife chased the husband’s SUV (sports utility vehicle) in her car after she spotted another woman seated next to him in his vehicle.
As her husband’s SUV stopped at the Pedder Road signal, the wife got down from her car, rushed towards his four-wheeler and started shouting at him, a police official said.
In the video, the woman is seen climbing the bonnet of the SUV, removing her footwear and hitting the vehicle’s windshield with it. She is also seen asking the husband’s co-passenger to get out of the SUV and shouting for police help.
As she stopped her car in the middle of the busy road, one lane got blocked for some time and the traffic police personnel present there tried to ensure movement of other vehicles, the official said.
After some time, the traffic police asked the couple to take their cars near the footpath.
By that time, the husband stepped out of his SUV, following which the wife ran towards him and caught him. She even kicked him a couple of times and took him to her car, the video shows. She then again ran towards her husbands SUV, which was parked few metres away.
She opened its driver-side door and lunged at the woman seated in the vehicle, but was stopped by some people who had gathered at the spot, the police official said.
Later, the couple and their cars were taken to Gamdevi police station, where the wife refused to lodge a complaint against her husband.
A fine was imposed on her for traffic rules violation and abandoning her car in the middle of the road, which caused disruption of vehicular movement, the official said.
