The home minister's order came after the video went viral since on social media.
"I have taken note of a video where a youth has been seen severely beating a woman. I have spoken to the Delhi Police Commissioner over the phone and directed him to take necessary action in this regard," Singh tweeted.
According to media reports, police in West Delhi have registered an FIR against Rohit Singh Tomar after a woman filed a complaint on watching the video.
