Punjab: Mohali Trade Fair organiser booked for joyride collapse

A day after a swing broke in the air and fell from a height of 50 feet at the Mohali trade fair, a day after at least 16 people were injured, the district police on Monday registered a case against the organisers of the event.

A case has been registered against Trade Fair organizer Mukesh Kumar and unknown members of his team under section 337 (Whoever so rashly or negligently causes hurt to any person as to endanger human life, or the personal safety of others ho), 287 (negligent conduct about machinery), 341 (wrongful confinement) and 323 (assault) at the Indian Penal Code (IPC) Phase VIII Police Station.

Deputy SP (City-2) Harsimran Singh Bal told Deccanera.com that they will arrest the accused soon.

When asked whether the organizers had taken permission to operate the joyride, Bal said a preliminary investigation showed that the organizers had permission.

Bal further said, “We have started the investigation and will take action accordingly.”

When asked why the organisers were charged with assault and wrongful confinement, Bal said eyewitnesses told him that when the accident happened, bouncers present on the spot misbehaved with some of the visitors and pushed them.

Meanwhile, doctors said that most of the injured were discharged from the hospital after treatment.
