Newly Elected MP Kangana Ranaut Allegedly Slapped At Chandigarh Airport; CISF Constable Under Scrutiny

In a shocking incident at the Chandigarh airport, newly-elected Member of Parliament and Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has reportedly been slapped by a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) constable. The altercation allegedly stemmed from a dispute over the treatment of farmers, marking a dramatic turn of events for the prominent figure.

Kangana Ranaut Allegedly Slapped By CISF Constable

The incident, which has sent shockwaves across the nation, is said to have occurred as Ranaut was preparing to board a flight to Delhi. The constable in question has been identified as Kulwinder Kaur. According to NDTV reports, she purportedly took this drastic action citing Ranaut’s alleged disrespect towards farmers. This alludes to the turbulent 15-month farm laws protest, during which farmers demanded a legal guarantee of the minimum support price. The protests are now history.

Kangana Ranaut has recently clinched victory in the Lok Sabha elections from Himachal Pradesh’s Mandi constituency. Since the incident, she has also spoken out about it. Allegedly, she claimed that while in a restricted area at the Chandigarh airport, Constable Kulvinder Kaur engaged in a heated argument with her, culminating in the alleged assault.

The actress and MP addressed the situation, updating her followers on her safety via Instagram.

Even though she is safe, Kangana says she is concerned about the situation in Punjab.

The CISF is leaving no stone unturned, conducting a thorough investigation into the matter. This includes reviewing CCTV footage from the Chandigarh Airport to ascertain the facts and circumstances surrounding the altercation. This incident has not only sparked outrage but also reignited debates surrounding the safety and security of public figures.
