Bollywood actor-director Sohail Khan, along with brother Arbaaz Khan and son Nirvaan, have been placed under institutional quarantine by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation.
A case has also been filed against the trio allegedly for violating norms and are now quarantined in Taj Lands End Hotel in Mumbai.
This comes after a complaint was raised by a BMC medical officer and a case under Section 188 IPC under Section 3 of Epidemic Diseases Act was filed against them. The FIR was filed at Khar police station.
According to the reports, the trio had returned from Dubai on December 25 and were asked to quarantine themselves at the hotel.
Upon testing negative for coronavirus at the airport, all of them decided to return home, the complainant said.
Amid the spread of the new mutant strain, the Maharashtra health ministry had issued guidelines.
Under which all returnees from the UK, UAE and even Europe are required to under-go a seven day quarantine.
The BMC officials said once the trio complete their stay, an RT-PCR test will be done to ensure they are not affected with novel coronavirus.
At least 8 UK returnees had tested positive on Monday, state health minister Rajest Tope informed.
