Facing backlash, Congress MLA Asha Kumari apologises for slapping woman constable

Congress MLA Asha Kumari slaps woman police constable she slaps her back

Kumari, 57, was allegedly restricted by the police' from entering the party headquarters after which she took offence and slapped a woman constable.

Congress MLA Asha Kumari slapped lady police constable during Rahul Gandhi's Shimla visit on Friday. However, the matter did not end there as the woman constable also slapped the Congress MLA. A senior Congress leader told TOI that after seeing the video, Rahul expressed his displeasure and told Kumari that she should not have hit the cop. However, she said the constable pushed her and abused her. "I am not happy at it".

On the basis of a complaint by constable Rajvanti, the case has been registered in Sadar Police station of Shimla under section 353 and 332 of Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The constable, however, wasn't ready to go without a fight and slapped Kumari in return, following which the MLA landed another slap before the video of the incident cut away.




Asha Kumari is the Punjab in-charge of the AICC and won the recently held Himachal Assembly elections from her home seat Dalhousie.

Rahul will meet party legislators, defeated party candidates and district presidents, and discuss with them the reasons for the defeat. In the meeting, Rahul Gandhi was expected to meet the party legislators.

Himachal Pradesh Assembly Elections 2017 were held in single phase on November 9.

Kumari, who had managed to retain her Dalhousie seat in the polls despite the BJP wave in the hill state, was apparently late for the meeting.
