FIR against CISF constable for allegedly slapping Kangana Ranaut

The Punjab Police on Friday booked a Central Industrial Security Force constable for allegedly slapping actor and newly-elected Bharatiya Janata Party MP Kangana Ranaut on Thursday, at the Chandigarh airport, in retaliation for her hate comments about the 2020-’21 farmers’ protest.

Kaur has been suspended from duty and a departmental inquiry has been initiated against her.

The FIR was filed against constable Kulwinder Kaur in Mohali district charges her with causing hurt under section 323 of the Indian Penal Code, and wrongful restraint under section 341 of the Indian Penal Code.

It was filed on the basis of a complaint by the Central Industrial Security Force.

On Thursday, Ranaut, the MP from Himachal Pradesh’s Mandi, alleged that she was assaulted by Kaur when she was at the Chandigarh airport to board a flight to Delhi.

Ranaut later said in a video message that she was safe. She expressed concerned about “growing terrorism and extremism in Punjab”.

In a viral video, Kaur was seen recounting the BJP MP’s remarks about the farmers’ protest in 2020.

During the historic protest of farmers, the actor who is infamous for hate comments and genocidal remarks, had misidentified a woman farmer and claimed that she was Bilkis Bano, a Muslim woman icon who was at the forefront of the protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act in Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh.

Referring to Bano, she had alleged in a now-deleted tweet that the “same Dadi [grandmother]” who had also featured in Time magazine was now “available in Rs 100.”
