Himachal Pradesh Congress leader and MLA Asha Kumari, who was booked under Sections 353 and 332 of the IPC (criminal assault on public servant) for allegedly slapping an on-duty woman constable, filed a counter complaint on Saturday, according to news agency PTI. Asha Kumari, Congress MLA lost her temper and slapped a lady constable.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi had arrived in Congress office in Shimla for meeting on Friday morning. A local Congress worker present at the scene of the altercation told APN Live that the lady cop apparently didn't recognise Kumari - a senior Congress MLA and former cabinet minister of Himachal Pradesh - and denied her entry, enraging her. "I should nearly be of her mother's age". No one has a right to raise hand against someone, at least not the Congress culture.
