The order comes after a petition by MD Kalam Azad. Azad stated that the yatra on 9 August violated the COVID-19 protocols in the state. He claimed that Annapurna Devi and her supporters were deliberately putting people’s lives in danger in the name of Jan Ashirwad Yatra.

The petitioner claimed that the district administration also failed to take appropriate action. They could not curb the crowd.

The Dhanbad Police is probing all those who attended the Jan Ashirwad Yatra.
