The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) headquarter in Delhi was sealed on Sunday after a staff associated with a senior official tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

CRPF Additional Director General Jawed Akhtar’s stenographer tested positive for Covid-19 early Sunday.

The force has informed the district surveillance officer for “initiating required protocols” as per medical guidelines, for time-bound proper sealing of the building located in the CGO complex on Lodhi Road. Jawed Akhtar and 10 other personnel have been home-quarantined, even as authorities began contact-tracing of all the personnel who came in contact with the staffer at the headquarter building.

Earlier, a driver attached with CRPF had tested Covid-19 positive.

So far, 144 CRPF personnel have tested positive -- 135 from 31 Battalion in Delhi’s Mayur Vihar phase 3. The entire battalion has been sealed since then.
