Update: Post publishing, Mini Mathur has replied to Republic's post asserting that she doesn't 'back' Kanika Kapoor.

Television host and actor Mini Mathur took to her Twitter account to stand up for Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor who has been tested positive for the novel coronavirus infection. The Baby Doll hitmaker had allegedly been booked for negligence by police authorities in Lucknow as the singer stirred controversy with her social activities post her return from London. Mini, through her tweet, compared the FIRs registered against Kanika to a witch-hunt where she is being blamed for the mass hysteria amid the novel coronavirus outbreak in the country.
