New Delhi/IBNS: Maulana Saad, the absconding chief of the Delhi faction of Islamic missionary movement Tablighi Jamaat, has been traced by police to Zakir Nagar here days after a massive congregation of Muslim preachers came to light amid the spike in Novel Coronavirus cases in the country, Times Now reported.

Saad said he will be unable to join the police investigation as he is in quarantine.

The religious congregation, which took place at Delhi's Nizamuddin Markaz mosque in mid-April, has been blamed for the surge in the positive cases.

Around 3,000 people had stayed at Nizamuddin violating the norms of social distancing even when the Delhi government had ordered no gathering of 200 people at a time the religious event was hosted.

After the incident came to light, the participants, both Indians and participants, travelled to different parts of the country leading police to resort to an uphill task of tracking the people who had attended the event.

The police had also launched a hunt for the absconding cleric Saad.

The Health Ministry of the country has stated 600 of total positive COVID-19 patients had attended the event.
