According to the management, a male customer apparently in a hurry wanted to be served before other patient buyers.

He jumped the queue and was stopped by a brave lady who asked him why he though he was a special buyer.

The man started beating the lady and in no time he was beaten by other customers before security men cornered him.

He was ejected out of the mall and handed to police.
