The Himachal Pradesh Police on Friday registered a complaint against Congress leader Asha Kumari for slapping a police constable. MLA Asha Kumari had grabbed her home seat, Dalhousie, during the Himachal Pradesh election 2017.
However, the woman constable has filed a complaint against the Congress legislator. She said, "The constable was abusing and pushing me, trying to stop me from entering the party office even after I showed her pass to identify myself".
Later in the day, during an address post the meeting Gandhi said, "I am not happy at it". The Congress MLA Asha Kumari, who is the in charge of All India Congress Committee (AICC), assaulted a woman constable who was guarding the entry to the office.
Complainant further alleged that she was restrained from moving ahead and pushed back and manhandled.
Kumari in her complaint accused the woman police of repeatedly slapping, manhandling, threatening to kill and stopping her from entering the Congress office during party President Rahul Gandhi's visit to Shimla on Friday. No one has a right to raise the hand against someone, at least not the Congress culture. "I apologize", Kumari told the media after the incident.
Rahul Gandhi was in Shimla to attend a Congress meeting to assess the loss in recent assembly elections. He met party legislators, party candidates and district presidents, to discuss what went wrong in the elections. The BJP had won 44 seats in the hill state to oust Congress' Virbhadra singh from the chief minister's chair and his party from the government.
