Bollywood actress Vidya Balan is the new victim of the Dengue outbreak. The actress was diagnosed with the disease on Friday.
The BMC has sent a notice to actor Shahid Kapoor, who lives close to Balan on Juhu Tara road, and another neighbour to prevent the breeding of vestor for the disease, the Aedes Aegypti species of mosquito.
While surveying Kapoor’s home, the BMC found the species breeding inside the actor’s swimming pool. Kapoor has received a notice under section 382 of the BMC Act to prevent the breeding of the mosquito, which probably bit Balan, who lives only two floors above.
Besides attracting mosquitoes, allowing stagnant water also brings a fine of Rs 10,000 with it under the BMC act.
Ever since the Dengue outbreak, over 1500 people have been admitted in hospitals and many have died from the ailment.
