The Central Industrial Security Force on Thursday suspended the lady constable.

Kangana Ranaut took to her social media account on the day of the incident and asked how growing “extremism” and “terrorism” could 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.
