A purported video of AAP MLA Baljinder Kaur being slapped by her husband, who is also a leader of the ruling party, has surfaced on social media.
In the video shot on July 10, the two-time legislator from Talwandi Sabo could be heard arguing with her husband, Sukhraj Singh. Suddenly, Singh gets up and apparently slaps Kaur.
Some people standing near the couple then intervene and push Singh away, the video showed.
Kaur could not be reached for comments.
No complaint has been filed by the AAP legislator.
