In an embarrassment to the AAP government in Punjab, the police have arrested Joney Kapoor, an “aide” of state minister Fauja Singh Sarari, for using the national flag and hooter on his private car. He has been booked under Sections 170 & 336, IPC, besides Section 2 of the Prevention of Insult to National Honour Act, 1971. An FIR was registered amid a high voltage drama at the Gurharsahai police station where a section of AAP workers protested against his arrest. Sources said the police arrested Kapoor when he was coming to Guruharsahai in his car. Earlier, BJP leader Gurparvez Singh Shella Sandhu had uploaded the picture of the vehicle of the AAP leader on his social media account, demanding action by the police.
