Those arrested have been identified as Mehtab Singh, son of a head constable, Harpreet Singh of Noor Di Road, Tarn Taran, and Satnam Singh of Gharka village in Tarn Taran.

Malkiat Singh, the victim, stated to the police that around eight persons came to the bar in an Audi car (HR02N0027) and a Mahindra Bolero (PB02DS9896) yesterday evening. After consuming liquor, they forcibly entered the restaurant portion allotted for families and starting shouting.
