Police to file charge sheet against 83 foreigners who were a part of ‘Tablighi Jamaat’

On Wednesday, May 27, twenty charge sheets were filed by the Delhi Police against 83 foreign nationals in Delhi's Saket Court on Tablighi Jamaat in March, which was linked to thousands of coronavirus cases in India, concerned officials said.

Earlier this month, the Delhi Police Crime Branch confiscated the records of some 700 foreign members connected to the Islamic group. The documents seized included the passports of these people. Sources informed that all the members of the Tablighi Jamaat had taken part in the event held at Nizamuddin Markaz in March.

On 5th May, the Delhi Police Crime Branch interrogated the son of Maulana Saad, the chief of Tablighi Jamaat, and searched for details about 20 people who had attended, or were part of, the Nizamuddin Markaz in the national capital.

The first information report (FIR) was earlier reported against the Chief of Tablighi Jamaat and others under the Epidemic Disease Act 1897 in connection with the congregation in the Nizamuddin area of Markaz, which emerged as a COVID-19 hotspot.

The Delhi Government told the High Court that the foreigners who attended the Tablighi Jamaat congregation and connected to thousands of coronavirus cases, were not in custody in the national capital in March. The government said that the foreigners were just being "looked after."
