An FIR has been filed against actor Vivek Anand Oberoi for not wearing a face-mask in public despite it being mandatory for all citizens to wear a mask as a precautionary measure to control the outbreak of COVID-19.
A police official from Juhu Police station told indianexpress.com, “An FIR has been registered against actor Vivek Oberoi for flouting public health safety rules mandated by the government which makes it mandatory for all citizens to wear a face-mask as a precautionary measure to control the outbreak of COVID-19. Action will be taken against the actor in this matter.”
On Friday, the Santacruz Division of Mumbai Traffic Police had sent an e-challan to Vivek for flouting traffic safety rules in the city.
Vivek later took to Twitter to thank Mumbai Police for making him “realise that safety is always most important.”
