Amritsar: On the directions of DGP Suresh Arora, the local police have booked former Chief Khalsa Diwan (CKD) head Charanjit Singh Chadha and his son, Inderbir Singh, on the complaint of a school principal, who was purportedly seen with Chadha in a “sleazy” video.
A case was registered at Islamabad police station under Sections 354 (assault and use of criminal force to a woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 354-A (sexual harassment), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 509 (word or making gesture intended to insult modesty of a woman) of the IPC and Sections 67 and 67-A of the Information Technology Act.
