New Delhi: AAP MLA Alka Lamba slapped a youth who claimed to be mentally unstable when he reportedly tried to misbehave with her while she was conducting an inspection of the heritage mansion of renowned poet Mirza Ghalib on Thursday.
The accused was handed over to Kotwali Police by AAP volunteers.
“He winked at me. He was looking at me in an inappropriate way. He also approached me near town hall, after which I slapped him. Following this, he started running. AAP volunteers who were there with me, chased him and handed him over to Kotwali Police. He claimed he was mentally unstable but even by evening his family could not produce any satisfactory evidence that he was undergoing medical treatment, “said Lamba.
The police identified the accused as Rajjesh from Baljeet Nagar area.
“A written complaint has been made to us in this regard and we are looking into the matter,” a police officer said.
