Ludhiana, June 30

Since the death of ACP Anil Kohil due to Covid-19 on April 18, the Ludhiana police have so far tested 3,000 cops. Of them, 30 were tested positive. They included DCP Ashwani Kapur and SHO Arshpreet Kaur. Nearly 25 of them are still under treatment.

Besides, 183 police personnel remained under quarantine. Ludhiana Police Commissioner Rakesh Agrawal said: "Ever since the curfew was imposed in the state, the entire police force has been working in the forefront. During the course of duty, ACP Kohli fell prey to the virus. After his death, cops continued to act as frontline warriors, although with more precautions," Agrawal said.

DCP (Headquarters) Dr Akhil Chaudhary said to prevent the spread of the disease in the force, public dealing of cops had been reduced to bare minimum. "An online complaint system has been put in place for the convenience of both police personnel and the residents," he said. —TNS
