FIR against Rahul, Priyanka, 200 other Congress workers in Noida

The FIR was lodged under Sections 188, 269 and 270 of the IPC and under Section 3 of the Epidemic Diseases Act



Noida, October 2

The police in Uttar Pradesh's Gautam Buddh Nagar said it had lodged an FIR against Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and around 200 other party workers under the Epidemic Diseases Act for not maintaining social distancing and not wearing face masks.

The FIR was lodged under Sections 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant), 269 (unlawfully or negligently spreading infection of any disease dangerous to life), 270 (malignant act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life) of the IPC and under Section 3 of the Epidemic Diseases Act, the police said.

“Some party members have also been booked for indulging in a scuffle during which some women constables were hurt while the uniform of a woman sub-inspector got torn,” the Gautam Buddh Nagar police said in a statement.

On Thursday, around 200 Congress workers, including senior leaders of the party, had started a march on the expressways in Greater Noida after their convoy was stopped near Pari Chowk.

The two leaders and around 200 party workers were briefly detained by the police and later released on personal bond, a senior officer told PTI.

The party workers were en route to Hathras to meet the family of the 19-year-old Dalit woman, who had died in a Delhi hospital on Tuesday, a fortnight after she was allegedly gang-raped near her village in western UP. PTI
