Police at Central Police station in Kampala yesterday arrested two Indian nationals who escaped from 14 days forced quarantine in Entebbe.
According to Patrick Onyango the Police spokesperson for Kampala Metropolitan says the pair arrived in Uganda on 12th from India and were put under quarantine for 14 days.
Onyanga however says they paid bribe and escaped from quarantine before 14 days.
“They escaped and went and opened their pharmacy at Kooki tower and the public got concerned and called police,” says Onyango adding that public wanted to lynch them.
He says police rushed and saved them from mob justice. He adds that police took them to Mulago Hospital for testing and if they are found positive will be put under isolation.
However Indians say when they came on 12 , there was no forced quarantine.
“When we reached at air port we were tested and allowed us to go,” says one of the Indian. He added that they will respect the law and will be tested.
