Veena Ashiya Chindlur has just shown what happens when you mess with female joggers.

While we don't usually condone violence, we can't help but be a little pleased to see Veena get her own back on the man who she says sexually harassed her.

Veena was out on her daily run when a man reportedly started harassing her.

She told the Bangalore Mirror: "Around 9:30 am., my friend and I were jogging when he made strange noises and eve-teased me."

"Eve-teasing" is an Indian term for public sexual harassment or molestation.

Veena decided to take on the man who allegedly made lewd gestures at her. She chased him down the road and made him kneel on the floor.

In the video, Veena can be seen kicking the man - whom she later reported to the police.

"I tried to scare him by running after him. He tried to flee, but I chased him and hit him. However, he managed to escape," Veena said.

The incident was filmed by Veena's friend, leading to the alleged attacker being identified as 30-year-old KR Suryaprakash.

Veena's video has been watched over 50,000 times on YouTube via The Bangalore Mirror. Speaking to the paper, Veena says she thinks the video has gained so much attention because "the fact that women can react and hit back is just not acceptable in our society."
