AHMEDABAD: Garbas have not been without their share of problems this year. On Saturday night, a group of boys from the Gujarat University hostels reportedly ran riot at the university grounds where SOI Entertainment was hosting its garba.
Janak Suryakant Jhaveri from SOI Entertainment lodged a complaint at the Navrangpura police station against Indravijaysinh Ghanshyamsinh Gohil and 40 other boys, accusing them of having fought over entry passes.
The group was reportedly armed with sticks, and are learnt to have resorted to stone-throwing and damaging cars parked on the grounds. The complaint states that the group damaged the pandal and decamped with some Rs 20,000.
