Today, everyone's eyes are on the screens for the court's decision on Harkirat Singh Mangat alias Elly Mangat's arrest. The man was sent to 2 days police remand and today, he will be presented in the court for further proceedings. Amidst this high voltage controversy, a fresh update has come in which states that the landlord of Prince Randhawa (Rami Randhawa's brother) has been booked.
It has been reported by The Tribune that Prince Randhawa was living on rent in Purab Premium Apartments in Mohali, but the landlord had not done the mandatory police verification till date, even though the man has been living there for the past five months.
The flat owner Dharambir Singh, who belongs to Sonipat, has been booked by the police under Section 188 (disobedience to order promulgated by public servant) of the Indian Penal Code, at the Sohana police station of Mohali.
While Rami is reportedly a verified tenant, Prince has still not been verified by the police. In the ongoing spat, Mohali police is looking out for the two brothers for arrest under preventive measures but their respective flats are looked and their whereabouts are not known. Even their mobile phones are switched off.
"After being booked under sections 294, 504 and 506 of the IPC and Section 67 of the Information Technology Act, 2000, they were granted bail, but they are still seen posting videos on social media," the police said. Sohana station house officer inspector Rajesh Hastir said, "Both will be arrested soon...the police are on their trail. When somebody is released on bail, he/ she knows that the police will arrest them again, so they tend to hide."
This controversy has certainly given a boost to the fan following of both Elly Mangat and Randhawa brothers social media pages.
What started as a publicity stunt has now taken a serious turn. It has been reported that Elly had created a ruckus with his acquaintances in Mohali, outside Purab apartments. Even though the man knew that there's heavy police force outside, he still reached the location and challenged the brothers of a face-off. Many youngsters, who were present there were also taken into police custody and some were even subject to lathi charge.
