An advocate filed a criminal complaint against Kanika before a Bihar court on Saturday accusing her of neglecting and disobeying the order issued by a public servant to prevent the spread of novel coronavirus.

Kanika, who had attended several gatherings, tested positive for coronavirus and it came to light on Friday.

Advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha lodged the compliant before the court of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Satish Chandra.

Kapoor allegedly hid the fact that she was infected with the coronavirus.

The matter will come up for hearing on March 31.

The complaint also accused Kapoor of spreading the disease among people by performing at three parties in Uttar Pradesh’s Lucknow.

Another FIR was registered against Kanika at Sarojini Nagar police station in Lucknow. The FIR was lodged on the complaint of the Lucknow chief medical officer.

The singer, who became the first Bollywood celebrity to test positive for coronavirus, landed in Lucknow from the United Kingdom and was admitted to a city hospital after she showed signs of flu.
