In the complaint, MO said that the trio returned from Dubai on December 25 and was asked to remain in quarantine in a hotel. However, they went home. As per the health ministry regulations, the returnees from the UK, UAE and Europe are required to stay in 7-day institutional quarantine.
Trio shifted to Hotel Taj for institutionalized quarantine
TOI had reported that when BMC officials went to Sohail’s home, they were informed that as they tested negative for the Covid-19, they decided to go home instead of staying in quarantine. The officials have taken the matter seriously, and the trio has now been shifted to Hotel Taj End where they will remain in institutionalized quarantine at their own cost.
Chaitanya S DCP (Operations), Mumbai Police said, “An FIR has been filed at Khar police station. The BMC medical officer has complained that three people, who have returned from abroad, were supposed to undergo quarantine, but skipped the same and went home.” He further said that a case had been filed and an investigation is currently underway.
