Twitter sure had fun trolling JW Marriott a bit more. Meanwhile, a probe has been initiated by Chandigarh Deputy Commissioner and Excise and Taxation Commissioner Mandip Singh Brar. He ordered an investigation into the “illegal and exorbitant charge of GST” by the five-star hotel on two fresh bananas. If found guilty, the JW Marriott will reportedly have to face legal consequences.
