The rare baryonic decay provides valuable complementary information compared to the corresponding mesonic transition. In this paper, using the latest high-precision lattice QCD calculation of the transition form factors, we study this interesting decay within the aligned two-Higgs-doublet model, paying particularly attention to the effects of the chirality-flipped operators generated by the charged scalars. In order to extract the full set of angular coefficients in this decay, we consider the following ten angular observables, which can be derived from the analysis of the subsequent parity-violating decay: the differential branching fraction , the longitudinal polarization fraction , the lepton-, hadron- and combined lepton–hadron-side forward–backward asymmetries , and , as well as the other five asymmetry observables (). Detailed numerical comparisons are made between the SM and NP values for these angular observables. It is found that, under the constraints from the inclusive branching fraction and the latest global fit results of data, the contributions of right-handed semileptonic operators , besides reconciling the anomaly observed in decay, could also enhance the values of and in the bin , leading to results consistent with the current LHCb measurements.
