In a surprising turn of events, Kangana Ranaut, the newly elected Member of Parliament from Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, and a prominent Bollywood actress, was allegedly slapped by an on-duty female Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) constable at Mohali Airport on Thursday afternoon. The constable, identified as Kulwinder Kaur, reportedly reacted to a comment made by Ranaut about Punjab women during the farmers’ agitation against the three farm laws. Ranaut had suggested that Punjab women participated in the protest for monetary compensation.

An inquiry has been initiated against Constable Kulwinder Kaur, and sources indicate that she will soon face suspension. A senior police official provided exclusive details to News18, stating, “Today, Kangana Ranaut, MP from Mandi (Himachal Pradesh), and Bollywood actress, arrived at Mohali International Airport to fly to Delhi. During the security check in the SHA area, Kulwinder Kaur, a female CISF constable, conducted the frisking and subsequently slapped Kangana Ranaut.”

What led to the altercation?

The altercation allegedly stemmed from Ranaut’s earlier derogatory remarks about Punjab women involved in the farmers’ agitation. Ranaut reportedly conveyed her intention to file a complaint with the Union Home Ministry to CISF senior officials at the airport.

Having said that, the farmers' protest, which lasted 15 months and was held against now-repealed farm laws, also addressed other related issues.

The Central Industrial Security Force has confirmed the incident, stating that Constable Kaur has been suspended. A senior CISF officer mentioned that they are in the process of registering an FIR against her and have already lodged a complaint at the local police station. The investigation is ongoing, and further actions will be determined based on the findings.
