Patiala, May 7

Noted gangster Jaggu Bhagwanpuria, who was tested positive for Covid-19 in Batala two days ago, has now tested negative, claimed district health authorities. The gangster is undergoing treatment at the prison ward of the Government Rajindra Hospital, Patiala.

Civil Surgeon Dr Harish Malhotra, in a press release, said after initial doubts over his report, Jaggu Bhagwanpuria today tested negative.

He was tested positive on May 2 in Batala. He was taken from Patiala Central Jail to Batala on production warrant April 30.

After he tested positive, his sample was taken again and sent to GMC, Amritsar. This time, he was tested negative. His sample was also tested by a private lab, which too found him negative.

In the meanwhile, citing security concerns, the prison ward at the Patiala hospital has been converted into an isolation facility.

The hospital authorities said as the designated Isolation facility at Rajindra had some security issues, the gangster had to be lodged at the prison ward.

The doctors confirmed that he was healthy and did not show any Covid-19 symptoms. A doctor, pleading anonymity, said, "Apart from the security deployed by the district police, the gangster is being treated as a normal patient. Doctors are continuously monitoring his health."
