The Medical officer is now at KMTC quarantine facility and is expected to spend 14 days as directed by the head of state. During the interview, the medical officer did not connect what the police needed apart from Curfew pass, authorization letter and the Medical License.

" I was driving home at around 7.40 PM where Police stopped me. I handed over the documents. I  told them that I'm from the hospital and I'm a medical worker as my shift was over, " he narrated.

" I showed them the softcopy of my pass, they said I had contravened the curfew laws. I repeated that my shift was over until tomorrow at 6.30 am. They shouted that I'm contravening the curfew laws. I had another saying continue until he connects what we need, "  he added.

" I was thrown to the cells. I showed them my hardcopy pass but they insisted that i had contravened the curfew laws. They later needed the authorisation letter, I gave them and curfew pass but insisted that I had contravened the curfew laws, " he concluded.
