Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga has issued a public apology after a video of his daughter assaulting a doctor, in the state capital Aizawl, went viral.
Video footage of the incident shows the Chief Minister’s daughter Milari Chhangte walking up to the doctor and hitting him on the face as other people present there try to hold her back.

Milari flew into a fit of rage after the skin specialist refused to see her without an appointment. The doctor had asked her to take an appointment before turning up at the clinic for consultation. The incident, happened on Wednesday.
The Mizoram unit of Indian Medical Association (IMA) started a protest against the assault and doctors wore black badges to work yesterday. The Chief Minister and his family members also came in for heavy criticism on social media.
The Chief minister eventually tendered a public apology through his official Instagram handle. He said that he apologises for his daughter’s misbehaviour with the Aizawl-based dermatologist and would, in no way, justify her conduct.
