An FIR has been lodged against Bollywood actors Arbaaz Khan and Sohail Khan for violating COVID-19 norms on Monday (January 4, 2021).
The FIR has been lodged at Mumbai’s Khar Police station under Indian Penal Code Sections 188 and 269 following a complaint by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). As per reports, a case was also filed against Sohail Khan’s son Nirvaan.
They reportedly returned from Dubai (UAE) on December 25 and were asked to remain in quarantine in a hotel but they went home. They gave a false undertaking to quarantine themselves at Hotel Taj Lands End but went to their Bandra home instead. Notably, people flying in to India have to quarantine themselves for a period of 7 days.
According to the existing norms, the returnees from the UK and UAE as well as Europe are required to undergo a seven-day institutional quarantine. The norms were put in place by the state government after a new strain of coronavirus surfaced from the UK.
