Kanika Kapoor grounds herself in a controversy after she was confirmed Covid-19. The singer is best known for her song Baby Doll, she took to social media to share the news that she has been infected with novel Coronavirus. The singer has been admitted in the hospital since the analysis. However, the diagnoses came after she flew from London to Mumbai and then to Lucknow. During the past two weeks, she socialised with many people, including former Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje and Uttar Pradesh Health Minister Jai Pratap Singh.
While the two ministers have been tested negative for the virus, three FIRs have been lodged against Kanika. The first has been lodged by Lucknow’s Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Narendra Kumar Agarwal. The CMO has complained to the Sarojini Nagar Police Station, Lucknow, under Sections 188 (disobedience of an order duly promulgated by a public servant), 269 (negligently acting in a way likely to spread the infection of any disease dangerous to life), and 270 (malignant act likely to spread the infection of any disease dangerous to life) of the Indian Penal Code, a Bombay Times report reveals. The other two cases against the singer have been lodged at the Hazratganj Police Station and Gomti Nagar Police Station, the report adds. She has been booked for negligence.
