Choudhary said when he resisted the third slap, Kitchloo ordered the police to arrest him. “His men started beating me up. I thought I may not come out alive. Officials of my department finally rushed in and rescued me with the help of the police.” Choudhary has filed a complaint with the local police.
The meeting was meant to fine-tune the preparations for chief minister Omar Abdullah’s visit to the city on Thursday. Kitchloo, who is also a local MLA, was not available for comment.
