“It’s a father and a daughter we arrested in connection with a chop bar being operated by these two persons. These two persons have been granted bill but they have been cautioned for causing a public nuisance. We are hoping to see them tomorrow (Thursday, August 26, 2021) and then we will continue with an investigation”, she said.
