Who is Kulwinder Kaur, the CISF constable who slapped Kangana Ranaut?

The woman Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) constable, Kulwinder Kaur, who allegedly slapped Kangana Ranaut, the newly elected BJP MP at the Chandigarh airport on Thursday, was triggered by a remark the actor-cum-politician made during the farmers’ protests in 2020.

Kulwinder Kaur, in a viral video, was seen saying, “My mother was there,” referring to Kangana Ranaut’s statement saying women in the farmers’ protest were paid ₹100 each to sit on Delhi borders.

“Kangana kehti hai aurate 100-100 rupee mein baithi thi aurate farmer protest mein, yeh baithegi wahan pe? Meri maa baithi thi jab isne bayan diya tha (Kangana said the women were sitting in the farmers’ protests for ₹100. Will she go and sit there? My mother was sitting there and protesting when she made that remark),” Kaur said.

The suspended woman constable, who faces a police case, also said she had reacted to the actor-cum-politician’s comment “disrespecting farmers”.

Tasked with providing security at airports, the CISF has also ordered a court of inquiry into the incident.

According to reports, the CISF constable belongs to a family of farmers.

Kulwinder joined the CISF in 2009 and has been with the aviation security group of the force at the Chandigarh airport since 2021.

The officials said, she has had no vigilance inquiry or punishment against her in the force till now, adding her husband, too, is posted at the same airport.

Following the incident, the BJP MP shared her “concern” over increasing “terrorism and extremism” in Punjab.

Kangana Ranaut also confirmed the incident happened at Chandigarh airport during security check.

Kangana said, “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 added.

During the height of the nationwide farmers’ protest against the three farm laws in 2020, Kangana Ranaut had posted about an elderly woman seen at one of the protests and said, she was “available for ₹100”.

The actor was forced to delete the tweet after public outrage.

‘Strict action should be taken’

Rekha Sharma, National Commission for Women chief said strict action should be taken against Kulwinder Kaur for slapping Kangana Ranaut.

Sharma said it is a serious matter as the people who are responsible for security at the airport are breaching it.

“Strict action should be taken against the lady CISF personnel. We at @NCWIndia have taken up this matter with @CISFHQrs,” the NCW chairperson said in a post on X (formerly Twitter).
