Aurangabad (Maharashtra), Aug 22 (TIWN) Quashing FIRs against around three dozen Tablighi Jamaat followers, the Bombay High Court has said that there is a possibility that those who were present in the organisation's Delhi headquarters were chosen to be made scapegoats and slammed the media propaganda to blame them for the Covid-19 spread.

The bench also noted that while the Maharashtra police acted mechanically in the case, the state government acted under "political compulsion".

The 29 foreign nationals were booked under various provisions of the IPC, the Epidemic Diseases Act, Disaster Management Act and Foreigner's Act for allegedly violating their tourist visa conditions by attending the Tablighi Jamaat congregation held at Nizamuddin in the national capital.
