The police said a religious congregation by Tablighi Jamaat preachers was organised near a mosque in Nizamuddin earlier this month before the lockdown. (Late on Monday night, PTI quoted the Telangana government as saying six people from the state who attended the congregation in Nizamuddin have died of the coronavirus infection.) The police said they had isolated the mosque and the adjacent building where the congregation had taken place from the rest of the Nizamuddin area. “Efforts are also on to track down participants who returned to their hometowns in other states after taking part in the religious congregation,” he said. Many of the participants in the religious congregation had travelled all over India after the event got over on March 19.
