Apr 01, 2020 06:50 IST

Delhi Police Tuesday registered an FIR against Tablighi Jamaat preacher Maulana Saad and others of members of the outfit under the 1897 Epidemic Diseases Act for organising a congregation at Nizamuddin West Markaz amid the coronavirus outbreak. A number of coronavirus cases in Delhi as well as Telangana, Tamil Nadu and Kashmir has been traced to the gathering organised in mid-March. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said 1,548 people were evacuated from the Markaz Tablighi Jamaat over the past three days. Meanwhile the union home ministry said that 1339 Tablighi activists have been quarantined at Narela, Sultanpuri, Bakkarwala facilities and also at some hospitals including AllMS in Jhajjar.
