Former Congress MLA and DCC president Kulbir Singh Zira was arrested by the police from his residence in Zira around 4 am on Tuesday.

After his arrest, Zira was produced before the sub-divisional judicial magistrate and sent to the Ferozepur jail till October 31

Zira, who is the Congress' district unit chief, was arrested following a complaint by a block development panchayat officer, accusing the leader and his supporters of obstructing him and other staff in performing their duties during a protest a few days ago.

Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh Raja Warring slammed the AAP government for the arrest of Zira.

In a post on X, Warring said the case was registered against Zira for holding a protest against the government officials for allegedly not performing their duties.

"The  AAP's Punjab government wanted to suppress our voice. We will not sit quiet and will hold a massive protest against this vindictiveness," he added. With agencies
