So the ongoing war of words on social media by Punjabi singers Elly Mangat and Rami Randhawa has finally come to an end for now atleast because the former has been arrested by Punjab Police.
On Tuesday, police had booked the Randhawa brothers Rami Randhawa and Prince Randhawa along with Harkirat Singh Mangat aka Elly Mangat, for allegedly threatening each other on social media over a petty issue for the last few days. During their respective live sessions, they challenged each other for a head-on confrontation at Purab Apartments, Sector 88 Mohali, on September 11.
Under sections 294, 504 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code and 67 of the Information Technology Act, 2000, a case was registered against them.
Yesterday Rami was arrested by police from his flat in Sector 88 after both the parties were seen motivating their fans to carry weapons and gather at the location.
According to a report, a senior police officer opined that this all could be for the sake of publicity but as a precautionary measure, both the singers have been booked.
Elly had arrived from Canada today just for this face-off with Rami and as soon as he reached the location, he was taken into custody by the police. The location was already buzzing with energy where the fans of both Rami and Elly were seen waiting eagerly for their favorites.
The police were not allowing any media coverage from the location and were even appealing to the wise minded to spread a positive message and not make such challenges a big deal so as to let Punjab remain a safe place for one and all. Many notorious youngsters were seen flooding the spot with their cars and two-wheelers but many of them were taken into custody as soon as they came in close proximity to the location.
For now, Elly is behind the bars and only after he comes out, will we finally be able to understand whether this war of words is over or not!
