The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) today filed an FIR against Guauhar Khan for allegedly steeping out to shoot despite testing positive for Coronavirus. A BMC officer told Indian Express, “When we 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.”
Another BMC official told India Today that they had received a complaint from someone that Gauahar wasn’t at home even after testing positive for Covid-19. The official said, “When we called her she returned home after ten minutes and said that she had done a test and was now negative. But we told her that it doesn’t work that way. This isn’t a responsible behaviour. There was non-cooperation from her end.”
“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.
Soon after, a tweet from BMC’s account read, “No Compromise On City’s Safety. BMC has filed an FIR against a Bollywood actor for non-compliance to COVID19 guidelines on testing positive. The rules apply to all alike and we urge citizens to follow all guidelines and help the city beat the virus.” A photo of the FIR was posted along with the tweet but the name was hidden. Have a look at the tweet below:
