Jalandhar: Four bouncers have been arrested for allegedly manhandling photo-journalists outside cricketer Harbhajan Singh’s house on the day of his wedding here, police said today. Navdeep Singh, Station In-charge of Commissionerate Division, Number Seven, said the bouncers, identified as Babul, Kuldeep, Ravi, and Navjot, were arrested last night for ‘misbehaving’ and ‘manhandling’ the media men.

The men were produced in the court, which sent the accused to police custody today, he added. The bouncers had also snatched their video cameras from the media crew while they were recording the event yesterday, Navdeep said.

They have been booked under sections 379(B), 427 and 506 of the IPC. According to the sources, Harbhajan Singh had sold the rights for the shoot of his wedding to a news channel, and this is stated to be the reason behind the snaching of the gadgets by the bouncers.


Later, the media personnel sat on a dharna in front of the cricketer’s house. Harbhaja came out of the house and pacified the protesters and ‘apologised’ Harbhajan had tied the nuptial knot with his long-time girlfriend Geeta Basra at a Gurudwara here yesterday.
