“How dare you abuse me? Do I perform my duties for the people like you? Do I do this to get abused by people like you? People like you don’t have the right to live.” says Phogat in the video while lashing Sultan Singh, Market Committee Secretary.
Phogat said she had thrashed the market committee secretary as a reaction to his derogatory remarks against her.
“I visited Balsamand mandi along with a few farmers and the Hisar market committee Secretary Sultan Singh to inspect the arrangements for starting gram procurement there. Sultan told me that I am a charming lady, and I should not be roaming in the mandis for farmers. I tried to control my anger, but his words pinched me, so I thrashed him. He sought an unconditional apology from me. Now, I have filed a complaint against Sultan Singh,” said Phogat.
Both parties have filed complaints against each other. “We are verifying the facts. Strict action will be taken. Sonali Phogat has alleged that the official made derogatory remarks against her and tried to assault her,” said Joginder Sharma, DSP, Hisar.
