Kanika Kapoor, who was tested positive for the novel Coronavirus was receiving treatment at the hospital and after she recovered and was tested negative, she was discharged earlier this week and currently she is under self-isolation.
As known to all, before getting diagnosed with COVID- 19, the Baby Doll singer was accused of hiding her travel history of the United Kingdom (where she was vacationing) from the airport authorities in Lucknow, upon returning to India.
Not only this, she also partied with a whopping amount of people soon after returning from UK and that created a stir everywhere and she was bashed left-right-center for her carelessness and many people demanding strict legal actions against her.
Owing to this, an FIR was lodged against the singer for her irresponsible behavior, for not following the guidelines set by the Government to safeguard the Citizen from the virus and for putting everyone's life in danger.
Yesterday, a report in Spotboye stated that Kanika Kapoor will be interrogated by the Lucknow police after completing her 14 days of self-isolation post the recovery.
Now, a report in India Today states that the playback singer has been charged under Indian Penal Code (IPC) Sections of 259 (Negligent act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life) and 270 (Malignant act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life). The FIR was lodged at Lucknow’s Sarojini Nagar police station.
Police Commissioner Surjit Pandey, in a conversation with PTI, revealed, “An FIR was lodged at the Sarojini Nagar police station under IPC Sections 269 (negligent act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life), 270 (malignant act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life), 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant)."
The report added that according to legal experts, the complaint registered against Kanika Kapoor lacks evidence as almost all the people, with whom she came in contact with, were tested negative. The police officials will investigate all the sequence of events to put forth a final report in this case.
