The JJ Marg police had named seven people, including a minor boy, in its complaint on April 4 alleging that they were playing cricket defying the orders and when confronted, one of them twisted the hand of a policeman resulting into a fracture.

On April 4, the police personnel on patrolling duty found some young men playing cricket on a road in South Mumbai’s JJ Marg.

A sessions court here has rejected bail to a 20-year old man who was arrested for defying section 144 to play cricket on the streets earlier this month without wearing a mask.

“Considering the situation of Covid-19 in the state, particularly in Mumbai, (where) it is spreading like mayhem, the police authority has imposed Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code in Mumbai city to control the situation. In such a pandemic situation, the applicant along with other boys was allegedly playing cricket, that too without wearing a mask, prima facie contravening the provisions of Disaster Management Act. It is itself sufficient to hold that the applicant and other boys have formed an unlawful assembly with a common objection to take law in hand and contravene the guidelines issued by the state authority,” the court said in its order on Wednesday.
