Ludhiana, January 17
The Court of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Harsimranjit Singh has ordered issuance of an arrest warrant against Lok Insaaf Party chief and MLA Simarjeet Singh Bains after he failed to appear in a case pertaining to the violation of Covid norms.
The order came after the court declined the MLA’s request for exemption from personal appearance in the 2020 case relating to the staging of a dharna outside the Commissioner of Police’s office in violation of the Covid norms. During the dharna, protesters allegedly did not wear masks and failed to maintain social distancing.
The MLA and his brother Balwinder Bains had moved an application, seeking exemption. But the court took notice of the fact that the MLA was absconding in a rape case and the trial court had already initiated proceedings against him.
The case will come up for hearing on January 28. —
