Congress candidate Nagma slaps man for groping her at public meeting in Meerut
Actor-turned-Congress Party politician Nagma slapped a man who allegedly groped her at a public meeting in Meerut in Uttar Pradesh on Friday.
Thirty-nine-year-old Nagma said she has been facing this sort of blatant harassment throughout her campaign, and may just decide not to contest if such incidents don't stop.
She has reportedly hired bouncers and guards to keep her safe.
Last week, Nagma was manhandled by Congress legislator Gajraj Singh, who grabbed her face and allegedly kissed her at an event.
The incident was caught on camera. Nagma was seen removing his hand and walking off angrily, without addressing the crowd.
Action is yet to be taken against Singh.
Though she denied the incident, another Congress leader Pramod Katyan, who did speak up for her, was apparently punished for it, suggesting that the party does not want to risk its chances of winning in the area.
