The Son of Gupta

For all the competition in Mumbai's media circles, only Mid Day could have carried a headline that read: "46-yr-old demands ripe fruit, is punched". So what actually happened? The article says:
Manjula Katudia (46) was beaten up yesterday for something that every one of us routinely do. Insisting that a vendor sell her some ripe fruit.

The fruit seller who punched her, is the son of Gupta, president of the Vegetable and Fruit Seller’s Association, and is currently absconding. [Sic, sic, sic!]
Outstandingly entertaining, even if inadvertently so.
