Issuing threats and throwing challenges at each other on social media led to the arrest of renowned Punjabi singer Rami Randhawa here today while his brother Prince Randhawa and another Punjabi singer Elly Mangat have been booked for obscene acts and criminal intimidation.

Rami and Elly used abusive language on social media, including Instagram, Facebook and YouTube, and challenged each other. “As per their challenges, the groups of the two singers were all set to meet at Purab Apartments to settle scores with each other,” said DSP Ramandeep Singh.

Under preventive action, the Mohali police today conducted a search of Purab Apartments and nabbed Rami Randhawa. “His brother Prince Randhawa was not present there while Elly is said to be coming from Canada and is expected to reach here tomorrow,” said the DSP.

“We have already sent an alert to the airport authorities. We would nab him there,” he said, adding that Prince Randhawa, who usually sang with his brother Rami, was also at large. Raids are on to nab him, said the DSP.

Earlier, SSP Kuldeep Singh Chahal, along with the DSP, reached Purab Apartments to supervise the search operation today.

The DSP said the police were apprehensive of a clash there. “We took the preventive action and booked the trio under Sections 294, 504 and 506 of the IPC and 67 of the IT Act at the Sohana police station,” said the DSP.

He added that the two singers were involved in a spat for the past around 10 days. “We have been told that Rami and Elly were accusing each other of using foul words in their songs.” — TNS
