Shiromani Akali Dal leader Parambans Singh alias Bunty Romana was arrested by the Mataur police of Mohali on Thursday on the complaint of cyber cell. He is accused of sharing an objectionable video related to Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Singh Mann on social media. The lyrics of the song have been tampered with in the video. Police have registered a case against him under sections 468, 469, 500 of IPC and sections 43 and 66 of IT Act.
At the same time, after the arrest, Akali Dal has come into action. Party President Sukhbir Singh Badal reached the office of Mohali SSP and termed this action as politics of revenge and registered his protest. Badal said that no case has been registered yet in the assistant professor suicide case. At the same time, a case was registered in this matter even before 24 hours. However, SSP Dr. Sandeep Garg was not in the office. After this, Sukhbir Badal spoke to him on phone and protested against the arrest of Bunty Romana.
