Violations: Owners of IELTS centre, theme park booked

Tribune News Service

Jalandhar, April 30

The city police on Friday took action against all those violating the restrictions imposed by the state government in view of the rising number of Covid-19 cases.

The owner of an IELTS centre was booked for allegedly running coaching classes. Classes were reportedly being held with the doors locked from outside to give an impression that the centre was not working.

However, after a complaint was lodged with the police that the centre, having its building near the bus stand, was calling students for offline classes, the nearby bus stand police post raided the centre and got it immediately vacated.

Manvir Singh, owner of the centre, was booked under Section 188 of the IPC and under relevant sections of the Epidemic Diseases Act and the Disaster Management Act. While schools and colleges had been shut since March 20, the state government had earlier this month ordered the closure of all coaching centres too.

In another incident, the owner of Wonderland theme park, Nakodar Road, was allegedly booked for violating the norms imposed keeping in view the rising number of Covid-19. As per the norms, all clubs, gyms, pools and stadium had been ordered to remain closed on April 19.

Today, as the news pertaining to the functioning of a swimming pool in Wonderland went viral, Kashmir Singh, SHO, Lambra police station, reached the site and took action. Since the owner of the theme park was not present, he was booked for violating the Epidemic Diseases Act, but could not be arrested.
