Elly Mangat granted bail

A social media spat between two Punjabi singers that threatened to spill on to the streets has reignited the debate over the glorification of a culture of violence, drugs and alcohol in contemporary Punjabi songs.

The war of words began when Mohali-based Ramandeep Singh Randhawa (28) alias Rammi Randhawa and his brother Prince lampooned New Zealand-based Harkirat Singh alias Elly Mangat (30) for singing songs that glamourised alcohol and guns. With a huge social media following, Mangat hit back.

The spat started on social media applications like Facebook Live, Instagram Live, Snapchat and YouTube and soon the singers dared each other to come at a particular location for an actual fight, prompting police to take them into custody.
