  1. Why kidnap the brother?
    Because a son is more valuable than a daughter there.
    Why kidnap him at all?
    For money, of course. His family is loaded.
    How can we know this?
    She has a gun in a country that does not recognize even basic civil rights except for the very wealthy and politically connected.

    What American states does this remind us of?

  2. It looks like a mock gun. Look at the barrel in relation to the slide. And India makes a .32 revolver based on the old Webley.

  3. Fake news

    There’s no such thing as a good guy with a gun, much less a good woman. Islam and the Indian caste systems are not to be feared, they don’t threaten anyone /s

    Good job Ms Falaq, and for being an unmarried woman in such a culture makes this (and her) even more impressive

  4. Muzzle control, lady!

    And toward the end she’s waving that Glock-looking pistol around with her finger on the trigger.

  5. Not to take away from what the woman did here but she had help. A male relative drove the car to where her in-law was being robbed. It seems like the whole rescue was a family affair. Also, the cops were called but stop pursuing as the thieves/kidnappers went farther outside Delhi.

    Her brother-in-law was targeted because he is cab driver – not the safest job in the world. This does prove that even though the cops were called, hostage rescue (like many other activities) is a DIY project.

  6. goddamn you guys got your priorities ALL out of whack. all you talk about is what kind of gun it is. WHO CARES!!!!!

  7. Maybe a world wide trend towards self defense and defense of others, without waiting on the government.
