Besides posing a huge threat to human lives, the war against Coronavirus has also erupted the war against the nations on discovering the vaccine and war of words against the global leaders on holding each other responsible for the spread of the pandemic and the war has now led an Indian lawyer to file a case against the Chinese President in the local court by labeling the latter as responsible for the spread.
According to the reports, the lawyer, who is based in Bihar, has moved his petition against Chinese President Xi Jinping and World Health Organization (WHO) Director Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus by claiming that these two leaders are responsible for the spread of COVID-19.
The lawyer was identified as Murad Ali and he has filed a petition in the court of the Chief Judicial Magistrate in West Champaran district in Bihar. In his petition, he alleged that the Chinese President is responsible for the spread of the virus from Wuhan city in China to the rest of the world late last year and cited that the head of WHO had reportedly concealed the spread and conspired with the Chinese leader.
While the plea surprised many, the petitioner has surprised them more by naming Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump as witnesses in the matter.
By quoting the electronic media, print media, and social media as his source of the allegations, Ali urged that the actions should be taken against the responsible under sections 120B, 269, 270, 271, 302, 500, and 504 of the Indian Penal Code. The court has accepted the petition and scheduled the hearing of the matter on June 16.
According to the reports, it's not new for the Bihar court to see the plea against the Chinese President as in March, Sudhir Kumar Ojha, a lawyer based in Muzaffarpur, has moved his petition against the Chinese President and the Chinese Ambassador to India in which he accused them of their criminal conspiracy of spreading the Coronavirus Pandemic in India.
