An FIR has been lodged against actor Vivek Anand Oberoi for not wearing a face-mask in public, despite it being mandatory for all citizens to wear masks as a precaution to control the outbreak of COVID-19.
A police officer at Juhu police station told indianexpress.com, “An FIR has been filed against actor Vivek Oberoi for flouting the government-mandated public health safety regulations, which as a precaution, all citizens face-mask. Wear makes it mandatory to control outbreaks of COVID-19. Action will be taken against the actor in this case. “
On Friday, the Santacruz Division of the Mumbai Traffic Police sent an e-challan to Vivek to disguise traffic safety regulations in the city.
Vivek was later taken to Twitter to thank the Mumbai Police for making him realize that security is always the most important.
