Hence, the activists had blocked the road going from RTO towards Jehangir Hospital and obstructed the traffic. The activists of the organisation had made speeches by using loudspeakers without permission in the vicinity of Ruby Hall Clinic, Jehangir Hospital and NM Wadia Hospital.

 

This had forced the ambulances to take a long detour to go to the various hospitals and this could have endangered the lives of seriously ill patients. The activists were aware of this but still they resorted to blocking the road inconveniencing the citizens.

 

They did not wear masks and did not follow the social distancing norms and violated the instructions issued by government officials. Hence, the FIR has been filed against them.
