New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: A COVID-19 positive man from South Delhi's CR Park has been booked for carelessly discarding his PPE kit and safety gears on the road. The development comes days after music composer Shantanu Moitra shared the video on Twitter and urged authorities to take appropriate action in this regard.

"This is a video of a house in C.R.Park Delhi...with likely COVID patients disposing there PPE kits in the gully behind ...this is hazardous and dangerous. Many senior citizens live here and are petrified. Authorities please look into this urgently." read Moitra's Tweet.

In a minute-long video, the potentially-infected protective gear could be seen hanging on overhead electrical wires and lying scattered on road near the house of the accused. Taking cognizance of the video, a Delhi police team visited the spot and files a case against the person. According to the police, since the accused is still COVID-positive, he will be arrested only after he recovers.
