Indian singer Kanika Kapoor was sent home this week after testing negative for the novel coronavirus. Though she is discharged from the hospital, she has to stay in isolation for the coming 14 days.
According to a report, Lucknow Police is planning to interrogate Kanika once her isolation period is over. A case was booked against the singer for hiding her travel history and attending lavish parties after returning from London.
She was charged under IPC Section 269 [negligent act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life] and Section 270.
Earlier, Kanika confirmed of being infected with the novel coronavirus through an Instagram post. In the now-deleted post, she had written, “I was scanned at the airport as per normal procedure 10 days ago when I came back home, the symptoms have developed only 4 days ago.” She added, “I am feeling ok.”
As per legal experts, the case registered against her lacks evidence as no one, who came in contact with Kanika, was tested positive. Police will corroborate the sequence of the events to file its final report in this matter.
