Meghalaya chief minister Conrad Sangma on Friday said that the government has filed an FIR against those who leaked the list of patients, who had visited Bethany Hospital, which has been sealed and quarantined.

“I was very upset and sad to see that certain groups and individuals giving out list of patients who have visited Bethany hospital. It goes completely against the privacy of these patients and it is very incorrect for everybody to do that,” Sangma said via a recorded video that was circulated by the Chief Minister’s Office.

He also informed that an FIR in this case has been filed and action will be taken against those people who responsible for it.
