A police complaint was registered after a video surfaced on social media of an elderly woman allegedly beating up a female security guard of her housing society, police said on Thursday. The video purportedly shows the woman thrashing and abusing the guard with a stick. The row reportedly broke out when she objected to security guards using heaters and standing around her to warm themselves.

The incident took place at 3.30 pm on Wednesday near the main gate of Tulip Violet Society, Sector 69.
The woman, who is said to be in her 60s, had approached the guard room in her car.
