Kangana's new response

Reposting a tweet that suggested that the CISF officer's act might be politically motivated, Kangana wrote, “This makes most sense to me. She strategically waited for me to cross her and in signature Khalistani style, quitely came from behind and hit my face without saying a word. When I asked why she did that, she looked away and started to speak to the phone cameras focused on her (as can be seen in her videos), hogging sudden public attention. Farmers Laws have been repealed and they don't concern anyone anymore probably this was her way of joining Khalistani bandwagon which is getting major political seats in Punjab.”

After the incident, Ranaut took to her social media account and asked how growing "extremism" and "terrorism" can be ended in Punjab.

"I am safe. I am perfectly fine. The incident took place during the security check. After I was done with the security check, a woman constable of the CISF waited for me to pass through the cabin. Later, she came from the side, hit me in the face and started abusing me", Ranaut said in a post on 'X'.

"When I asked her why she did this, she told me that she (CISF official) had supported the farmers' protest. My (Kangana) question is how we end growing extremism and terrorism in Punjab", the BJP leader added.

Meanwhile, the CISF constable said that her mother was among the farmers holding a sit-in protest against the farm laws, which now have been repealed.

"She stated that the farmers are sitting there for 100. Will she go and sit there? My mother was sitting there and protesting when she gave this statement..." she said.
