Meanwhile, launching a scathing attack on AAP Govt, BJP’s Shehzad Poonawalla has said, “Not the first time we have seen such things under AAP. Inmates celebrating inside jail, making extortion calls, giving interviews from inside has become norm under Bhagwant Mann.
Punjab police has only one job- settle scores against political rivals. Suspending two cops won’t help- political patronage for this comes from the top. Law & Order has completely collapsed in the state. “
