The youth, whose identity was not immediately known, tried to step on an open SUV on which Hooda was standing, and in a flash, slapped the chief minister.
The youth was immediately pounced upon by Haryana Police personnel around Hooda and whisked away from the scene.
An agitated Hooda could be seen giving instructions to the security personnel following the incident.
Hooda was standing at the front seat of an open Gypsy SUV and was part of a Congress roadshow while going towards the rally venue in Panipat, 170 km from here.
Hooda enjoys Z category security with scores of heavily armed security personnel around him all the time.
