Actor-turned-politician Kangana Ranaut was on Thursday slapped at Chandigarh airport by a woman personnel belonging to Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), sources told HT. 

As per the source, the MP-elect from Mandi was slapped at security check for pushing the security personnel after the actor-politician refused to put her phone in the tray during security check. Kangana Ranaut left for Delhi at 3 pm by a Vistara flight.

The CISF has suspended the woman constable and given a complaint against her at the local police station for FIR, in connection with slapping BJP leader and actor Kangana Ranaut at Chandigarh airport, a senior CISF officer said.

In a video message, Ranaut narrated what transpired at the Chandigarh airport. “I am getting a lot of phone calls, from the media as well as my well-wishers. First of all, I am safe, I am perfectly fine. The incident that happened today at Chandigarh airport was during the security check. As soon as I came out after the security check, the lady in the second cabin, a CISF security staff came from the side, hit me on my face and started abusing me. When I asked her why she did so, she said that she supports farmers' protest. I am safe but I am concerned about the terrorism and extremism that is increasing in Punjab,” she said.
