NEW DELHI: There seems to be no respite for the Central Reserve Police Force which is battling a different enemy — COVID 19. As on Thursday, three more of its personnel were detected with the deadly virus, taking the total number of affected personnel to 254. Out of the 254 cases, only five have recovered so far while one trooper of the paramilitary force has succumbed. There are 248 active cases in the CRPF as of now. The 31st Battalion based in East Dehi's Mayur Vihar has been the worst hit. This unit shares the bulk of the cases plaguing the CRPF. So much so, it has been quarantined completely and the probe too has been reportedly ordered to ascertain what has gone wrong. (IANS)
