GUJARAT – A day after a video showing massive crowd at the engagement ceremony of former Gujarat minister Kanti Gamit went viral, the leader was arrested on Wednesday for violation of COVID-19 guidelines. The former minister was held under IPC’s Section 308, the police said. The action against Gamit came after the Gujarat High Court reprimanded the police earlier in the day. Gamit, however, admitted that it was mistake on his part to allow such a large gathering at the function. “I apologise as it was a mistake. We had organised Tulsi Vivah and my granddaughter’s engagement ceremony together but didn’t invite anyone personally. We’d prepared food for 2000 people and also organised dance. Someone made the video & it went viral,” news agency ANI quoted Gamit, as saying.
