Gurugram, May 27
After 13 policemen posted on Delhi-Gurugram border tested positive, the border has turned into a high-risk zone.
Citing them as vulnerable, those posted there for the past month have been replaced. The police personnel, who have now been posted there, have been provided special PPE kit that is to be worn during duty. The policemen, however, have refused it, saying that it can’t be worn in the current soaring temperature.
“It’s 45°C and we find it difficult to work in regular uniform. PPE kits will be all the more hard to wear in this heat. There is no way we can wear it and do our duty,” said an ASI posted on expressway border.
“The border has become a high-risk zone and we have withdrawn from there all police personnel whom we deem vulnerable. We have also changed the duty roster. . Only essential services are allowed from Kapashera border,” said a senior police officer.
“We have asked cops to maintain social distancing. We are also providing them immunity boosters. All Covid-positive policemen are being treated and they are recovering,” said Police Commissioner Mohammad Akil.
