Two members of the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) were put under quarantine after a girl rescued by the team of the women’s body was found to be positive for coronavirus. “A DCW mobile helpline counsellor and driver along with several police officers of KN Katju Marg police station are being put under quarantine after they came in contact with a Corona positive woman during a rescue operation,” a statement from the women body said. The body received a complaint on its 181 helpline on April 24 that a 26-year-old married girl had been confined at her home by her parents as they were against her marriage. She also alleged that she was being beaten by them regularly. The survivor wanted to go back to her husband’s home. The survivor’s husband was informed about the same. However, it was learned that while travelling to Panipat with her husband, they met with a minor accident, after which they were taken to a hospital in Panipat. Upon hospitalisation, the girl was found to be positive for Covid-19, the statement said. (IANS)
