Gurdaspur, December 3 (inputs from Ravibakhsh Singh Arshi):  Congress MLA from Gurdaspur Barindermeet Singh Pahra has come under the radar of the Punjab Vigilance Bureau. As per sources, he can be called for questioning anytime soon.

Although the Gurdaspur MLA could not be contacted for his comment, an official of the VB,  on the condition of anonymity, said he might be summoned on December 5.   


Notably, the Punjab Vigilance Bureau had recently sought information from the manager of a bank with regard to the accounts of eight persons, including Congress MLA Barindermeet Singh Pahra and his family. The SSP, Vigilance, also confirmed seeking information from the bank manager.

A letter of the VB in this regard had also gone viral on social media. While the Congress MLA denied having any information regarding such a letter, he expressed displeasure over the viral post on social media.
