Responding to a PIL from a law student, The Justice Bhusan-led bench tells the center to stop the usage of disinfectants on humans that was being used to curb coronavirus. 

The Supreme Court ordered the center to discontinue the usage of disinfectant sprays, ultraviolet rays, fumigation, and tunnels on human subjects as apart of curbing the spreading of coronavirus.

The order came from a bench led by Justice Ashok Bhusan as a response to a PIL filed by Gursimran Singh Narula, a law student who sought a ban on the productions, advertisement, installation, and usage of sanitization tunnels.

Earlier, in September, the apex court had asked the Centre why it had not banned the usage despite their stand on disinfectant tunnels which they said was not recommended since it was clinically and psychologically detrimental.
