Breaking Covid protocol during her marriage on April 26 has landed comedian Sugandha Mishra in the soup. She has been booked by the Phagwara police under Section 188 of the IPC and Disaster Management Act after a video showing many people attending her wedding reportedly went viral recently.

The Phagwara police have also booked and arrested Deepak Kumar, manager of the venue Hotel Cabbana falling on Jalandhar-Phagwara road, for breaking the Covid safety protocol and violating the restrictions imposed by the district magistrate. The comedian, who hails from Jalandhar, had got married to Dr Sanket Bhonsle of Mumbai.

While at the time of marriage, only 20 persons were allowed, the video footage shows more people, said Senior Superintendent of the Police Kanwardeep Kaur while confirming the arrest of the manager of Hotel Cabbana. She said while Mishra and manager had been booked by name, all those who attended the function and violated the norms would also be taken to task. “We have learnt that Sugandha Mishra is not available locally, so we will send her the notices and follow all legal procedures,” said the SSP.

SP Sarabjit Singh Bahia said a video from the wedding went viral on the social media and came to the notice of the police and hence the action got initiated.
