NEW DELHI: The AAP government on Friday defended in Delhi high court its Covid-19 regulations empowering police officers of sub-inspector and above ranks to impose fines for violating quarantine norms, saying it was a special measure taken to prevent the spread of the virus.

Delhi government told a bench of Chief Justice D N Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan that fines under the regulations were not in the nature of punishments under IPC, rather were preventive measures contemplated in accordance with the Epidemic Diseases (ED) Act of 1897.
The submission was made before the high court bench in an affidavit, filed through Delhi government standing counsel Ramesh Singh, which stated that under the ED Act the state was empowered to take such special measures to prevent the spread of epidemic diseases.
