The MLA alleged that the constable misbehaved and pushed her aside. Later, the MLA apologized for losing her temper. The MLA had not filed any complaint against the MLA.
As per reports, the Congress-chief Rahul Gandhi was in Shimla today to assess the reasons for the defeat of the Congress in recent assembly polls. The MLA was trying to get past the police security to enter into the venue of the meeting.
The Chief Minister, who is in Delhi, said he was unaware of the incident but assured appropriate action, if required.
The incident has come as a scathing humiliation for the MLA as she was the first to assault an on-duty police official.
