‘Report or face criminal prosecution’: Punjab govt sets 24 hr deadline for Tablighi Jamaat attendees

The Punjab government on Tuesday gave a 24-hour deadline to all those who attended the Tablighi Jamaat congregation at Nizamuddin in New Delhi last month, but went into hiding, to report to the nearest police station or else face criminal prosecution. A spokesperson of the state health department said all those, who attended the congregation and were currently in Punjab, should report and appear for COVID-19 screening within the next 24 hours. Out of the 467 people who attended the religious gathering, the Punjab Police have traced 445 persons so far, the spokesperson said.
