Mohali:The local police on Wednesday said they would inquire into a complaint by two cheergirls, who had alleged that they were barred from performing at an IPL Twenty20 match here last month.
"We have received a complaint from two dark-skinned cheer girls that they were barred from performing. I have marked the inquiry to DSP (city) and the complaint, which I received on my official e-mail ID, will be investigated," Mohali Senior Superintendent of Police, Ranbir Singh Khatra said in Mohali.
He said it was a "serious matter" and action will be initiated after the matter is investigated.
The two cheergirls had alleged that they were barred from performing in the April 19 match at PCA stadium here.
BCCI joint secretary M P Pandove had earlier said that IPL or the BCCI could initiate action if the cheergirls lodge a complaint with them.
Meanwhile, a group of Sikhs from the Kalgidhar Sewak Jatha and other religious bodies staged a protest here today against the alleged use of liquor and smoking at the stadium during the IPL matches.
The protesters burnt an effigy of Ness Wadia, co-owner of Kings XI Punjab team.
Punjab Cricket Association president I S Bindra said the PCA had valid license to serve liquor inside the stadium.
