Continuing their investigation against the owner of Free Kasol Café in Kasol who has banned the entry of Indians at his establishment, the police are probing whether the café owner had permission to use the land for commercial purpose.

Kullu superintendent of police (SP) has marked an inquiry into the matter to assistant superintendent of police Nischint Singh Negi. Besides, the district administration has been asked to provide exact detail of the land lease given to the café owner.

Though the matter came to the fore following complaints on the social media, the police have also received a formal complaint by two persons via email.
ASP Negi said he, along with a team, would visit the spot on Thursday to probe further. At least two posts on Facebook alleged that the café owner refused to serve Indians and claimed that the establishment was open only to members. The cafe is mostly frequented by Israeli tourists who visit Kasol in large numbers throughout the year.
