The startling scenes were recorded by an onlooker in the city of Chandigarh, which is also a union territory and serves as the capital of the states of Punjab and Haryana in northern India and the woman, named in reports as Sheetal Sharma, 25, has now been arrested.
Local media report Sharma had been driving down a slip road when she came to a sudden halt and started reversing before she reportedly reversed into a car being driven by a man named as Nitish in reports, no age given, and the pair began arguing.
Reports state she then pulled an iron rod out of her car and started attacking the other driver with it.
In the video, a woman can be seen swinging a metal road into Nitish and hitting his Hyundai Santro with it.

Nitish tries to defend himself from the swinging metal before the woman begins to walk away, still shouting at him.
Reports suggest Sharma smashed the Hyundai’s windscreen with the metal in the incident.
Nitish was injured in the incident and police confirmed to local media that he had been taken to hospital for medical attention.
Sharma was arrested and reports state cases of attempt to commit culpable homicide, reckless driving, endangering the life or personal safety of others and criminal intimidation were opened against her.
It is unclear if she has been charged and the investigation is ongoing.
