Mumbai: In a raid conducted at Dragonfly in Andheri for keeping the establishment open beyond permissible time limit and not following COVID norms, the Mumbai Police arrested cricketer Suresh Raina, singer Guru Randhawa, Sussane Khan among others for violating COVID protocols. All of them were later released on bail. Guru Randhawa’s team has now issued a statement on the incident. “Guru Randhawa, who had stepped out for dinner with close friends before returning back to Delhi the same morning, deeply regrets the unintentional incident that occurred last night. Unfortunately, he was not aware of local authorities' decision of night curfew but instantly conformed to all rules laid out by the government officials. He promises to comply with government guidelines and protocols by taking all precautionary measures in the future. By far, he has been a law-abiding citizen and will continue to do so in the future as well,” the statement read.

The singer was booked – along with 33 others - under Sections 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant), 269 (committing any act which likely to spread the infection of any disease dangerous to life) and 34 (criminal act done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the IPC and provisions of the National Disaster Management Act (NDMA).

Guru returned to Delhi later in the day.
