Amritsar, January 16

Bikram Singh Majithia has been booked for Covid violations after he met several supporters at the Golden Gate in Amritsar, police sources said.

Majithia was greeted by some 200 supporters at the Golden Gate on having just arrived in Amritsar after he was granted anticipatory bail recently in connection with some drug charges he faces. Sultanwind Police have booked him for disobeying a public servant (Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code) and provisions under the Disaster Management Act and the Epidemic Disease Act.

This comes in the middle of the third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. Amritsar reported 375 new cases and three more deaths on Saturday.
