The video of Sonali Phogat, a so called BJP leader , who got the party ticket by her rising popularity through the Chinese app TikTok , unruly beating up Balsamand market secretary in Hisar has gone viral on social media.
The video got viral, while she can be seen using her slipper to hit the official, while saying, “Am I working to hear abuses from people like you? Do I not have the right to a dignified life.”
A recent report says, Sonali Phogat has been booked for rioting, obstructing public servant in discharge of duty and other charges on the complaint of an agricultural market committee in Hisar who accused her of slapping and hitting him with a slipper.
A case has also been registered against Market Committee Secretary Sultan Singh whom Phogat has accused of making indecent remarks against her.
A video clip, purportedly showing the Hisar BJP leader beating a district’s agricultural market committee official with a slipper after accusing him of having made some indecent remarks against her, had gone viral on social media on Friday.
In the video, the 40-year-old ruling party leader from Adampur in Hisar, also a Tik-Tok star, is seen first slapping marketing committee secretary Sultan Singh and then hitting him with her slipper in full public view.
Singh later lodged a complaint with police against Phogat, denying making any indecent remarks against her and accused her of beating him up under a “misconception” that he had opposed her during the assembly elections.
Hisar Superintendent of Police Ganga Ram Punia on Saturday said a case under IPC Sections 147 (rioting), 149 (unlawful assembly), 186 (obstructing public servant in discharge of public functions), 332 (voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from his duty), 353 (assault ) and 506 (criminal intimidation) has been registered against Sonali Phogat.
Sultan Singh has been booked under IPC sections 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 509 (act with the intent to insult the modesty of a woman). Both cases were registered in Sadar Police Station Hisar, Punia said.
