11 arhtiyas booked for ‘objectionable’ remarks on traders

Bathinda, January 27

Arhtiyas staged a protest outside the Nehianwala police station at Goniana Mandi, after a case was registered against 11 of them for allegedly using objectionable remarks against the traders’ community two days ago.

Notably, in a video clip that had gone viral on social media, a section of arhtiyas allegedly used objectionable remarks against traders in which they had asked them to support the farmers’ stir.

Acting on a complaint submitted by members of the traders’ body, the police have booked 11 persons under Sections 153A and 505 (2) of the IPC. The SHO didn’t respond to repeated calls while efforts were on to strike a compromise between the two groups. — TNS
