Today, everyone's eyes were 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 on 12th September and today, the court ordered 14 days judicial remand for the singer.
He was presented in the Mohali court today where the judge ordered 14 days judicial custody though the police had appealed for more days in police remand for Elly but the court rejected the appeal and after the decision, Elly was immediately taken to Ropar Jail. Right before his court appearance today, Elly was taken to the Sohana Hospital for his medical check-up.
In a statement to the media, Elly stated that he had not intended a fight, he was in Punjab for personal work but it was Rami who initiated things. Elly further said that he only wanted to talk to Rami and also said that his language on social media was not abusive.
About Randhawa brothers, "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.
