The Uttar Pradesh Police later said that eight people have been arrested in connection with the matter and also clarified that neither the accused, nor the victim have been found to be directly associated with the Jamaat.

Uttar Pradesh has so far reported 227 coronavirus cases. India has so far recorded over 3000 coronavirus cases while a majority of the spike in positive cases recently were attributed to the Nizamuddin congregation of Tablighi Jamaat.

Government officials have said over 1000 positive coronavirus cases have been found to have links with the Tablighi Jamaat event.
