Vasanth Paul from Chennai was returning home after catching the first day first show of Rajinikanth’s Kabali on Friday. What happened on the way is a story that has gone viral on social media.

Mr Paul in a Facebook post has claimed that he risked his life to save a woman from being raped. And this post has gone viral. Mr Paul said while he was returning home after watching Kabali, he heard sounds of distress. He said he soon realised that it was a help call. He saw three men trying to rape a woman after which he rushed to her rescue.

"The moment I jumped in, a guy engaged in a fist fight and I could see a girl drugged full on and two guys trying to undress her... within seconds I was strangled by the other with a thick jute rope, the more I tried repelling, the more it cut through and intense the situation became, thankfully I was able to create enough time and space for the girl to get out and get an autowala's attention (sic)," he wrote.

"Moral of the story: don't be afraid to face a situation, just cos you're alone if the cause is right, the world would join you right away. Stay safe people.. and look out for one another (sic)," he said.

"I have so many scars on my body but I'm sure I'll be proud of these," he said. By Monday evening, the post was liked by more than 1 lakh people and was shared more than 34,000 times.
