Shocking: Bathinda: Beauty Contest Ad Offers Women An Indian Immigrant Groom In Canada, 2 Arrested

Setting in Canada is a dream for many, especially in Punjab. However, there are people who often fool the people in the name of giving an opportunity to settle abroad. As per the information, in Punjab’s Bathinda, two men have been arrested by the Punjab police after they advertised a beauty contest for women with the promise that the winner would get to wed an Indian immigrant living in Canada. The event was to be conducted in a hotel on October 23. The organisers posted the banners in the city’s public spaces announcing the same. Surpriingly, only ladies from “general category” were eligible to compete in the beauty contest, according to the advertisement.

On Wednesday morning, these posters went viral on social media. Furthermore, people began contacting the phone lines listed on the posters to express their opposition to such a contest, but later it was discovered that these numbers had been turned off. Additionally, they vented their fury on social media as well, and numerous locals went to the police to complaint against the organisers of the show. However, two accused have been arrested by the Punjab police and the further investigation is going on.

Reportedly, both the accused have been identified as Ram Dyal Singh Jaura and Surinder Singh. Additionally, they have been arrested under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 501 (printing or engraving matter known to be defamatory), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman), 419 (cheating by personation) 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property), 109 (Punishment of abetment if the act abetted is committed in consequence and where no express provision is made for its punishment), Punjab Prevention of Defacement of Property Act section 3 (defacing public property) and Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act section 6 (penalty for indecent representation of women).

Notably, the police has been investigating the matter and looking into various angles in the case. Shockingly, the owner of the hotel where the contest was to be organised, said there is no booking for the show. However, the Punjab police is now thoroughly probing the case.
