Amritsar, July 30

A local court today granted bail to organisers of Dasehra celebrations that turned tragic after a train mishap near Jora Phatak in 2018.

Seven members of the organising committee, including former Cabinet Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu’s aide Saurav, alias Mithu Madaan, were booked by the special investigation team of the Government Railway Police (GRP).

Others booked in the case were Rahul Kalyan of Golden Avenue; Deepak Kumar, Karan Bhandari and Kabal Singh of Krishna Nagar; Deepak Gupta of Savan Nagar and Bhupinder Singh of Amarkot in Krishna Nagar. Except Kalyan, all the remaining suspects were granted bail today. Kalyan had not applied for the bail. The GRP said the organisers had held the event without mandatory permissions and safety measures. The programme was held at Dhobi Ghat that lacked the space to accommodate a large crowd. — TNS
