HYDERABAD: A case was registered against 11 Tablighi Jamaat members on Monday for violating lockdown guidelines issued by the government in Hyderabad.

The 11 Tablighi Jamaat members who were arrested include eight people from Indonesia and three persons from Hyderabad.

"The 8 Indonesians after attending the Nizamuddin Markaz in Delhi came to the Mallepally Markaz office here and continued their religious preachings with the assistance of the other 3 members which include an office President, Secretary and a guide," Habeeb Nagar Inspector told ANI.
