After a probe report by the Fatehgarh Sahib police indicted Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann, he was booked in an FIR registered Saturday for “misbehaving with mediapersons, inciting violence” and “provoking” AAP supporters to “chase away” journalists from his rally venue in Bassi Pathana on September 1.

The FIR was registered after the Fatehgarh Sahib SSP marked a probe to DSP Bassi Pathana. The inquiry found that the AAP leader used “derogatory words” against mediapersons, and asked them to leave the venue voluntarily, failing which his “supporters would throw them out”. No arrest has been made so far.
