Security gaps have been found for “women” Music The event was held at Arista Resort in Mohali on October.
In a detailed letter to the state’s director general of police, a senior police official said there was a lack of security. Due to “poor checking” at the main gate, many armed personnel entered the unselected place.
Plainclothes female police personnel were seen taking part in the festivities and taking food and drinks in groups. A police officer of gazetted rank was seen touching the feet of a minister, which was the subject of much discussion, according to the letter.
No CCTV cameras were set up to monitor VIPs and “special people” as they got out of their cars. The letter added, “Anyone can enter the venue in VIP disguise.”

Some unauthorized workers have also crossed the Chief Minister’s security cordon.
