Faridkot, August 5

The Kotkapura police have launched a search for a 22-year-old NRI woman and a migrant daily wager, who fled their homes after testing positive for Covid-19. Both have been booked under the Disaster Management Act.

Health officials believe that the NRI woman, Charanjit Kaur, of Laleana village in Faridkot district, who came out positive in a repeat test on August 1, has fled to Hong Kong where she works as a chef.

A senior official said when a health team reached Charanjit Kaur’s home, the family members pretended that she had gone to Mansa for Raksha Bandhan.

Faridkot Civil Surgeon Dr Rajinder Kumar said: “We have lodged a formal complaint with the police. We fear many people could have been exposed to the virus.” — TNS
