The Assam Police has lodged FIR against two mosque committees in Kamrup district for allegedly sheltering some Jamaatees and not sharing their information with the police.
The police said that they filed the FIR because it was found that the two mosques in the district had sheltered 12 persons who were a part of a Tablighi Jamat. The committees of the mosque did not share their info despite repeated calls to disclose people visiting the Jamat and so the case was registered.
The police informed that the persons sheltered by the mosque were residents of Uttar Pradesh.
All the 12 persons were traced by the administration and they have been taken to a quarantine centre in Hajo.
These were sheltered by two mosques, one in Chaygaon and the other in Boko.
The police are currently investigating the issue, and are taking measures to check all the persons related to the mosque if they are infected by any mean.
The government in Assam had asked all the people who recently visited the Nizamuddin Markaz or the Tablighi Jamat to come forward as there were several cases where the visitors were tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
