Abohar, November 4

The foundation stone that was recently laid virtually by the Chief Minister for the construction of a sports stadium at Dhinganwali village near here was found damaged and four persons were booked in this regard. A case under Sections 434, 506 and 149 of the IPC and 3 of the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act was registered at the Khuyiansarwer police station on the complaint of sarpanch Yogesh Kumar.

He has named Ankit Siyag and Kushal Godara, besides suspecting indulgence of a few more persons. It is claimed that the foundation stone was laid on October 24 virtually by Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh and Balluana Congress MLA Nathu Ram.

The FIR courted controversy as Sushil Siyag, former sarpanch and ex-president of sarpanches union led a deputation to Fazilka and told the Senior Superintendent of Police that Ankit and Kushal, both Congress activists, were falsely implicated to settle political scores. The names of CM or MLA were not mentioned on the stone. The stone reads that the stadium in the grain yard has been dedicated to the public whereas it was just a foundation stone and the construction work was yet to be started. — OC
