face: Seven people have been arrested for organizing a birthday party at Chowk Bazar in Surat’s Sindhiwad area in clear violation of prohibitory orders imposed in the state due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The police have registered a case against the party organizers for violating the prohibitory orders issued by the Commissioner of Police. The organizers allegedly defied the night curfew and violated the limit on the number of people allowed in the gatherings.
A video of the celebration has gone viral, purportedly dancers from Mumbai were invited to a birthday party and men were seen throwing notes at them.
Some gang members have also been seen in the party. In this video, members of Sukri and Mindi gang are also seen along with famous Zafar Golden of Rustampura.
The video was shot five days back in the Sindhiwad Bhagatlav area where a huge stage was built to celebrate a girl’s birthday. COVID-19 guidelines have been violated in the party. Also, the exemption given for Navratri festivities has clearly been misused to host the party.
This also puts a question mark on the night patrolling of the police as the huge crowd for the birthday celebrations organized in violation of the COVID guidelines escaped the sight of the police.
