Moga: A politician affiliated with Punjab's ruling Shiromani Akali Dal and his son have been caught on camera slapping a five-month pregnant nurse at a hospital in Moga’s Bagha Purana town.
According to reports, the altercation between the two sides broke out when Paramjeet Singh and his son Gurjeet Singh were asked to wait.
The father-son duo had visited Gupta hospital to get a patient discharged but got angry when they were asked to sit outside and wait for their turn.
The duo has been booked under Sections 451 (house trespass to commit an offence), 323 (punishment for causing hurt voluntarily), 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation), and 34 (common intent in crime) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) at Baghapurana in Moga district.
Notably, Paramjit Singh's wife Daljit Kaur is a sarpanch.
"I only had asked them to wait outside as they were sitting on seats meant for staff. They could not take it and began to abuse me... to which I objected but they slapped me and pushed me to the floor, they hit me even though I said requested them to spare me because of my condition," NDTV quoted nurse Ramandeep as saying.
The video has gone viral.
