Settling old scores with ex-lovers are often justifiable, indeed while standing in a long bank queue amid post-demonetization crisis.

People standing in queue outside a bank in Nashik witnessed such a reunion earlier this week, after a woman who went to exchange old notes spotted her ex-boyfriend, who allegedly ditched her after proposing marriage four years back.

The woman had gone to the bank to exchange old high denomination notes when she noticed a familiar face among people in the queue.

After meeting her 35-year-old ex-lover, the woman immediately informed her brother and father who came to the spot and allegedly thrashed him in full view of public and bank staffers.

A case was registered against the man later on her complaint with Satpur police station, police officials said. In her complaint, the 23-year-old woman said they were close till he ditched her four years ago and were not in contact.

“The alleged boyfriend was brought to police station and questioned. He was bruised and we sent him to the civil hospital,” an official of the Satpur police station was quoted by PTI as saying.

According to police, a non-cognisable case has been registered against the man under sections 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation) of IPC.
