“Contact mapping of people I have been in touch with is underway as well. I was scanned at the airport as per normal procedure 10 days ago when I came back home, the symptoms have developed only 4 days ago,” she added.
Kanika had returned from her stay in the UK, and faced massive criticism for allegedly hiding her travel history. After returning from London, she hosted a lavish party which saw the attendance of many people, including political leaders. The singer triggered a massive coronavirus scare among parliamentarians and other prominent figures who had interacted with the singer during these parties before she tested positive. All of them have tested negative for the coronavirus now.
An FIR was filed against Kanika for negligence and disobedience of the order issued by a public servant and of committing a negligent act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life. Now that Kanika has been discharged from the hospital, it remains to be seen how she will deal with the FIR against her.
