Bengaluru, Sept 29: The Medical Education Minister Dr K Sudhakar has warned stern actions against people who flout social distancing rules in public places.

He was speaking to media persons after conducting a meeting with expert committee regarding Covid19 at Vidhana Soudha on Tuesday.

Coronavirus has been on a high in the past two months in the state, said the Minister.

Despite raising awareness regarding the dangers caused by the virus, the general public has been negligent without wearing masks, the State Government is keen on bringing stern rule against those who flout the social distancing rules in public. A detailed directive will be out in a few days, he added.

Post Coronavirus unlock in the state, political and religious gatherings have been on a high, and people are attending in alarming numbers. This has led to rapid spread of virus. Hence, it has been decided to put the stopper on these gatherings in the state, he said.

The Minister further said that events that are held in unavoidable circumstances with only 100 people will be allowed with prior permission from the district administration.

He informed that the Government plans to organise awareness programmes jointly in cooperation with cinema stars, religious heads, political leaders and artists.

The Minister also called upon people of the state to raise awareness about Coronavirus.

'Workshop for media persons'

Stating that the role of media in raising awareness about Coronavirus is notable, the Minister said that the Government is mulling over organising a special workshop for media persons. The workshop will be organised within a week, he said.

Noting that Covid-19 positive rate in 7 out of 11 districts is 12%, Dr Sudhakar said the death rate in the state is at 1.5%. Measures are being taken to reduce this to less than 1%, he added.

Bangalore, Sept 29: The hearing on bail for these actresses as well as other accused in the case was adjourned till September 30. The NDPS court also rejected the anticipatory bail applications filed by two accused in the case, Vinay Kumar and Shiva Prakash, who evaded arrest until now.

The Central Crime Branch police are also on the lookout for actor Vivek Oberoi's brother-in-law, Aditya Alva, who has been named in the case.

The CCB has so far arrested high-profile party planner Viren Khanna, alleged drug peddlers Loum Pepper Samba, Rahul Tonse, Prashanth Ranka and Niyaz in connection with the case.

Other than the probe by the CCB, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) is also conducting a parallel probe into the alleged money trail involved in this entire case involving two actors along with other co-accused on charges of money laundering.

The ED has already got permission from the First Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate on Thursday that had granted permission to probe the charges.

Among others, the ED is expected to question Viren Khanna, Sanjjana's friend and real estate businessman Rahul Tonse, and Ragini's associate B.K. Ravi Shankar who is among the arrested in connection with the same case.

Actor Ragini Dwivedi who had initially skipped summons by the CCB police on September 3 was arrested the next day for allegedly not cooperating with investigation officials, following raids at her residence. Sanjjanaa Galrani, who was also subsequently raided in connection with the same case, was arrested on September 8.

After a brief period in police custody, they were sent to judicial custody on September 14.
