In the wake of the Corona outbreak, police have filed a case against the singer Kanika Kapoor. The singer who tested positive is said to have hidden her travel history before the Govt. Officials who came for an inquiry. She, later, participated in a programme at a club with 100 others. Social media went berserk at the attitude of this singer and many claimed her a criminal and asked Govt. of India to take strict action on her.
Now the Singer is undergoing treatment for COVID-19 in Lucknow hospital. Police have filed a case against her citing her negligence and spreading the pandemic. The case was filed under IPC section 269 which tells that anyone tries to spread life harming diseases will be punishable for the offence with 6 months of imprisonment or fine and sometimes both based on the severity.
It is evident that the Government of India is very strict about curbing the pandemic before it becomes more severe across the country.
