Former Congress legislator Kulbir Singh Zira was arrested in the wee hours of Tuesday morning from his residence in Ferozepur district following the charges of obstructing an officer from performing his duties a few days ago.

A large number of his supporters gathered at the police station and raised slogans against the AAP government following the arrest.

The Congress' district unit chief, Zira, faced arrest as a result of a complaint lodged by a block development panchayat officer. The complaint alleged that Zira and his supporters obstructed the officer and other staff from fulfilling their duties during a protest that occurred a few days ago.

Punjab Congress chief Amrinder Singh Raja Warring slammed the AAP government for the arrest of Zira.

In a post on X, Warring said the case was registered against Zira for holding a protest against the government officials for not allegedly performing their duties.

"The AAP's Punjab government wanted to suppress our voice. We will not sit quiet and will hold a massive protest against this vindictiveness," he added.
