It’s been a year to the COVID-19 outbreak in the nation. However, the number of cases keep rising with each passing day. The BMC, governing civic body of Mumbai, is leaving no stone unturned in ensuring safety of the citizens.
In one such move, the Bombay Municipal Corporation (BMC) has filed a police complaint against a Bollywood actor for flouting COVID-19 guidelines.
Latest reports have it that the actor in question is Gauahar Khan, who has now been booked for allegedly going out for a film shoot despite testing positive for Covid-19.
According to Oshiwara police, Gauahar had tested positive for coronavirus and was asked to quarantine herself. A BMC official said that when they went to her home in Andheri (W), she did not open the door. “We then learnt that she instead went out for film shooting. We then approached the Oshiwara police station” said the official.
“An FIR has been registered at Oshiwara police station u/s 188, 269, 270 IPC, 51B of NDMA Act, 3 of Epidemic Diseases Act, on the complaint of a BMC official,” said S Chaitanya, DCP (operations) and PRO for Mumbai Police.
Mumbai Police shared a picture of the FIR copy and wrote alongside:
“No 'Role' Greater Than Helping Keep Mumbai Safe! FIR has been filed against a Bollywood actor who flouted quarantine rules and went shooting after testing positive for COVID19. We urge citizens to ensure a well deserved climax for the virus”.

The identity of the actor was kept under wraps as the name and address of the celebrity in question was blurred in the FIR copy.
Gauahar Khan is yet to comment on the same.
