Mumbai News Canadian rapper AP Dhillion’s live concert: COVID-19 protocols came crashing down on Sunday, as Canadian rapper Amritpal Singh Dhillon, popularly known as AP Dhillon, performed live at Grand Hyatt hotel in Mumbai, with thousands seen grooving to his peppy numbers in limited space.
Compulsory mask-wearing and social-distancing norms were blatantly flouted at AP Dhillon’s live concert at a time when the emergence of the highly mutated Omicron variant of the Coronavirus has underscored how perilous our prevailing situation is.
In the backdrop of soaring concerns over the spread of the Omicron variant, the Mumbai Police has imposed Section 144 in the city, banning public gatherings on weekends.
Despite this, AP Dhillon’s live concert was held at Grand Hyatt, and thousands of people turned up to immerse themselves in the artist’s music. Given the current precarious COVID-19 situation, the crowd-packed concert was nothing short of a nightmare. People were seen dancing without wearing masks and flouting physical distancing.
Mumbai Police officials gave no response when they were asked questions concerning the Canadian rapper’s concert, Mirror Now’s Sandeep Kumar Singh reports.
The police officials were not willing to answer as to why the concert was allowed despite a ban on public gatherings on weekends, Singh adds.
