Bathinda, April 27
The police on Tuesday arrested Bathinda Mayor Raman Goyal’s husband Sandeep Goyal along with 11 people, including two Congress municipal councillors, five husbands of Congress councillors and five
other Congress leaders, who attended the Congress councillors’ party at Three Palms Resorts in Bathinda on Friday night in violation of COVID-19 norms.
Apart from Sandeep Goyal, other arrested persons are municipal councillors Sukhraj Aulakh, Rattan Rahi, Congress leaders Vipin Kumar, former MC Sanjay Biswal, Nand Lal Singla, Charanjit Singh alias Bhola, Gurpreet Singh alias Bunty, Gurmeet Singh, Ram Singh Virk and Megh Raj.
SSP Bathinda Bhupinder Jeet Singh Virk said, “We have identified and arrested 11 persons today. They joined in the investigation and were released on bail. Further investigation is going on. The remaining will also be arrested within a day or two.”
It is pertinent to mention that Congress leaders organised a largely attended celebratory function at Three Palms Resorts, located on the outskirts of the city on Goniana road in Bathinda, in violation of the COVID-19 norms on Friday night.
Efforts were made to hush-up the matter but the photos of the party went viral on social media and media highlighted the issue.
Facing flak, Bathinda police registered an FIR and arrested resort owner Rajiv Kumar after sealing the resort and today more arrests have been made in this case.
