An elderly couple in Tamil Nadu bravely fought armed robbers with plastic chairs and slippers after the two miscreants entered their home last Sunday. The incident, which took place on Sunday, was captured on CCTV cameras at the couple’s home in Kalyanipuram. In the video, which has gone viral on social media, 70-year-old Shanmugavel, sitting in the porch of his house, reaches out to pick a paper. This is when a masked man comes from behind and puts a piece of cloth around the neck of the man in an attempt to strangulate him. An unsuspecting Shanmugavel fights off the machete-wielding man with the cloth still around his neck. As he struggles, shouts and kicks the man, his wife comes out running. This is when another intruder is seen in the CCTV footage. And then begins the valiant fight.
