Zira, his driver and personal assistant clashed with Punjab Police commandos deputed with Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal’s cavalcade, as it was about to enter the assembly premises. Police said that Zira got his Innova (PB 11 AD 0014) in the way of the cavalcade forcing it to brake. On being asked to stop, his driver tried to flee, but the CM’s security managed to stop the car.

A scuffle ensured that led to the arrest of Zira’s PA, Akashdeep Singh, and the driver, Daljeet Singh. Zira, a former Akali minister, complained of chest pain and was since hospitalised at Government Multispecialty Hospital (GMSH) Sector-16.
