People on Twitter expressed anger over the incident and tagged the office of Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar to take swift action and prevent such incidents again.
Attacks on toll booth operators by drivers who refuse to pay toll have been frequently reported from this area in the past.
In April, a man drove away with a toll booth attendant stuck on the SUV's bonnet after he tried to stop the vehicle in Gurgaon. The entire sequence was also captured by the CCTV camera installed at the booth.
Another woman toll collector was allegedly molested by some men at Kherki Daula toll plaza after she asked them to pay the fare in November 2017. A month later, a driver attacked a woman attendant at the same toll plaza and tore her clothes in an incident that was captured on CCTV camera.
