Kangana Ranaut Slapped by CISF Constable at Chandigarh Airport

In a startling incident at Chandigarh airport, newly elected MP and prominent Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut was reportedly slapped by a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) constable. The alleged altercation occurred as Ranaut was preparing to board a flight to Delhi.

The constable, identified as Kulwinder Kaur, purportedly cited Ranaut’s remarks concerning farmers as the motive behind the act of aggression. Ranaut, who recently won the Lok Sabha election from Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, has been vocal about her views on the farmer protests, which have garnered significant attention over the past year.

Mobile footage capturing the aftermath of the incident shows Ranaut being escorted by security personnel towards the security check-in area, where she engaged in a conversation with CISF officers.

Authorities have taken note of the incident, with the CISF Commandant initiating an inquiry into the matter. Additionally, local law enforcement has been informed of the incident by one of Ranaut’s aides.

Following the incident, Ranaut refrained from making statements to the media upon landing in Delhi. However, she later addressed the situation in a video statement, expressing her safety concerns, particularly regarding the rise of terrorism in Punjab.

The constable involved in the altercation stated that Ranaut’s previous remarks, including a comment about farmers protesting for ₹100, had deeply upset her. Ranaut had made the contentious statement during the farmers’ protest in December 2020, drawing widespread criticism.

The incident underscores the ongoing tensions surrounding the farmer protests, which have been marked by controversy and widespread debate. Ranaut’s involvement in the issue has further fueled public discourse, with her comments drawing both support and criticism.

Despite Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement to repeal the controversial farm laws in November 2021, concerns regarding agricultural reforms and the welfare of farmers persist. The withdrawal of the laws followed months of protests by farmers, who feared adverse impacts on minimum support prices and the corporatization of agriculture.
