A woman who reportedly works with an airlines as part of the crew has alleged that her mother and she were being harassed by the members of her housing society in Kolkata.

In a video, the woman said that the residents living in her housing complex accused her of being infected with the novel coronavirus and harassed her mother while she was away working, so much so that she had been unable to even buy groceries.

Swinging into action quickly, the Kolkata Police got in touch with the woman and promised “all possible assistance”.

“Please rest assured, anyone discriminating against heroes, discharging their duties risking their own safety will be dealt with strictly,” the Kolkata Police wrote on Twitter.
