The police have registered a case. TNS Chandigarh, November 6 Nearly four years after the open-air theatre was inaugurated in Sector 48 with much fanfare by then Mayor Davesh Moudgil, the facility has been lying deserted and in disuse. The site seems to have been abandoned after the inauguration. The entire area is covered with wild growth and there is no proper entrance to the facility. After much effort, a Chandigarh Tribune team had to walk through the bushes to gain access. Right outside the theatre, construction equipment and vehicles were found dumped. The Municipal Corporation had built the facility to enable artistes from the city and neighbouring areas to showcase their talent, making it a recreational centre for public, especially those living in the southern sectors. However in the past four years, not even a single event has been organised here. In fact, the facility is not even listed on the MC website for booking at Sampark centres. “After being built, it was never used. We are revamping it and will soon make it Mohali liquor vend worker shot at by 3 Mohali, November 6 Three unidentified youths allegedly shot at a liquor vend employee, injuring him near Kasauli village in New Chandigarh here on Saturday night.

The Tribune, now published from Chandigarh, started publication on February 2, 1881, in Lahore (now in Pakistan). It was started by Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, a public-spirited philanthropist, and is run by a trust comprising four eminent persons as trustees.
The Tribune, the largest selling daily in North India, publishes news and views without any bias or prejudice of any kind. Restraint and moderation, rather than agitational language and partisanship, are the hallmarks of the paper. It is an independent newspaper in the real sense of the term.
The English edition apart, the 133-year-old Tribune has two sister publications, Punjabi Tribune (in Punjabi) and Dainik Tribune (in Hindi).
