DDMA cancels Punjabi singer AP Dhillon’s concert regarding Covid violations

Punjabi singer AP Dhillon’s concert, scheduled for today in the Aerocity district of the nation’s capital, has been canceled by the District Disaster Management Authority (DDMA).

Orders were issued on Saturday by the Duty SDM which gave instructions to cancel the concert due to violations of COVID-19 standards. The music show was going to be part of the launch of a restaurant at the Andaz hotel in Aerocity, where a gathering of 400 to 500 guests was expected for the evening.

In the event of a violation, the event organizers would be reserved under Articles 51-60 of the Disaster Management Act 2005, Article 188 of the IPC and other applicable laws.

Previously, on December 13, an FIR was registered against the organizers of the Dhillon concert in Mumbai, as they allegedly violated COVID-19 standards.

The concert took place Sunday at The Black Boxx at the Grand Hyatt. Many celebrities, including Sara Ali Khan, her brother Ibrahim Ali Khan and Janhvi Kapoor among several others, attended the packed concert.
