Tripura CM seeks report on wedding venue raid
Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb seeks report on wedding venue raid by DM Sailesh Kumar Yadav.
Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb has asked Chief Secretary Manoj Kumar to submit a report on the events that transpired.
The district magistrate of West Tripura on Tuesday busted two marriage venues, where people had gathered in large numbers and the events went on beyond the stipulated time amid rising cases of coronavirus in the state.
IAS officer Sailesh Kumar Yadav also lashed out against police officials of the region for their inaction over the blatant defiance of the COVID-19 norms. At least 31 people were detained from one of the venues.
A video of Yadav has gone viral on social media, where he can be seen hitting out at those attending the wedding and the officials concerned. “Manikya Court and Golap Bagan are banned and they will not be able to operate for the next one year.
All the people who have assembled here have violated the order under section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Court and will be prosecuted under section 188 of the Indian Penal Code. They will all be arrested right now.”
