Submitting a memorandum in this regard to Sub-Divisional Magistrate (north) Sanjeev Singla on Monday, 18 February, members of these outfits said that it was wrong for the company to organise a musical show for enjoyment and raising funds when the entire country was mourning the death of 49 CRPF troopers in a terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama on Thursday, 14 February.

“Musical shows are meant for celebration, not when there is sadness across the country. This is not acceptable.”
