PMC has registered an FIR against a pub in Bandra West for violating Govt-19 operations. As the number of Govt-19 cases has increased in the city, the civic body has begun to break into restaurants and unmasked people.
According to the PMC, a health inspector from H-West (Bandra West) ward conducted a check at ‘145 Cafe and Bar’ around 11.30 pm on Saturday. Civic officials did not follow any social distance inside the pub. “There were 200 to 250 people inside the pub. Not all of them wore masks and no social exclusion was followed. We immediately closed the pub and imposed a fine of Rs 50,000, ”an official said.
Police lodged a complaint against the PMC pub for violating Govt-19 operations, after which the Bandra police station on Sunday registered an FIR against the pub. Meanwhile, K-East (Andheri) civil authorities have lodged a police complaint against four passengers from Europe and the Middle East, except for seven days of compulsory isolation. When a BMC team raided a hotel in Andheri East on February 10, four people were missing.
In addition, the civil society has recovered more than Rs 32 lakh in fines from those who have not yet worn a mask.
Mumbai police will also start fining people for not wearing masks in public. Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh tweeted from his official Twitter handle. “Dear Mumbaikars, Mumbai Police is now empowered to issue salons to unmasked criminals. We penalize you for not wearing a helmet or seat belt every time, which is always a reminder of the value of your life and safety. Same for masks. Please take care. You are important to us. “
