Maharashtra reported 11 new Omicron cases on Tuesday, of which one was detected in Navi Mumbai. The remaining eight patients, detected during screening operations at the Mumbai airport, include one each from Kerala, Gujarat and Thane, while the rest are from Mumbai. A total of 65 Omicron cases have been detected in Maharashtra so far.

Amid the fear of spread of the Omicron variant of coronavirus, the BMC health department held a meeting on Tuesday and reactivated the jumbo Covid-19 centres in the city. Meanwhile, the state health department has sanctioned Rs 2.4 crore to buy S-gene testing kits to gauge the spread of the new Covid-19 variant as a part of its 20-day study.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday questioned Shiv Sena MLA Ravindra Waikar for over eight hours in connection with a case. Waikar, a three-time MLA from Jogeshwari East, is a close confidante of Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.

In other news, 8 accused in the Elgaar Parishad case, whose bail pleas have been rejected by the Bombay High Court, approached the HC on Tuesday claiming that the judgment denying them relief was based on a “factual error,” as they had in fact filed default bail pleas within the stipulated time period, contrary to the observations made by the court in its December 1 order.
