Chandigarh, September 25
With the launch of the new iPhone 15 series, Apple fans are going crazy and trying their best to lay their hands on the new product as soon as possible.
Reports of people going to extreme lengths like waiting in queues for long hours to buy the phone are making headlines.
However, this craze to buy the new phone turned violent in Delhi on Friday, the day the phone hit the market.
In north Delhi’s Kamla Nagar, two customers indulged in violence in an electronics store after they were informed that there was a delay in the delivery of their phones and that they could not be delivered on the first day itself, as promised.
Upon this, the two customers beat up the employees of the store. In a viral video, the two can be seen hitting and punching the employees, while others try to stop them. They can also be seen pulling and tearing the t-shirt of one of the employees.
