In yet another incident of lawlessness outside the citys pubs and discotheques,two youths were taken into preventive arrest by the police after they created a scene in an inebriated condition outside a pub-cum-discotheque in Sector 8.
The incident occurred around 1.40 am on Sunday. The two accused,identified as Amritpal Singh (22) and Simran Sood (24),were reportedly in an inebriated state. Both belong to Ropar and had come to the discotheque for the first time.
According to the police,the two reportedly created a scene outside the discotheque and also started shouting and abusing others. A police Gypsy stationed outside the venue took preventive action (under Section 107/151 of the CrPC) against the two. They were taken for a medical examination and later to Sector 3 Police Station. On Sunday,the two were produced before the SDM after which they were released.
This was not the first such incident. In an embarrassment for the city police,a newly wed Ludhiana-based couple had a harrowing time outside Tao Discotheque and Lounge in Sector 26 last month. Tarandeep Singh was manhandled by unidentified persons after he chased the accused who had passed lewd comments on her wife Harveen Kaur and later snatched her purse. The two had come to the city to attend a wedding and chose to go to the nightclub. Tarandeep had chased the youths in his car up to Sector 17,where they beat him up. They even hurled a brick at his car and broke the windowpane.
