LUDHIANA: Actress Jimmy Shergill has been booked by Ludhiana Police for violating the COVID-19 protocols.
SI Maninder Kaur said that Jimmy Shergill’s team had been shooting a Punjabi film at Arya School for the last three days. Because of this, the school building was transformed into a set of session courts.
On Monday, police was informed that no social distancing is being followed there and no one was wearing a mask on their face. Due to this, the police team led by ACP Central Variyam Singh charged them with two fines.
Despite this, the team again violated the rules.
Later on, Tuesday, police received information that the shooting is going on during the night curfew hours and close to 150 people were present on the set. When the police raided again, the allegations were found correct. Police arrested 4 people, including Jimmy Shergill, with immediate effect. Of these, the remaining 3 have been identified as Ishwar Niwas, resident of Park Plaza, Varsova Panch Marg, Mumbai, Akash Deep Singh, resident of Sioda Chak, and Mandeep, resident of Madhuban Home in Zirakpur. They have been arrested for violating the government order and a case has been filed under the 3 Pandemic Act and other sections.
