An unmarried woman constable with the Nagpur police went into quarantine upon suspicion of being infected with coronavirus. She got admitted in a COVID care centre with a married man, whom she was in a relationship with, after informing authorities that he was her husband. One of the woman constable's colleagues had recently tested positive for the infection after which she decided to move to a quarantine facility. An official said the woman had requested authorities that her husband, who's working with the postal department, also be quarantined along with her in the Police Training Centre (PTC). It was only later revealed that he was not her husband as the woman constable claimed when the man was already married to another woman.
The man's real wife had gotten worried upon her husband not coming back home for three days and had no idea about him going into quarantine. She later came to know about her husband's affair and went to the COVID care centre, but was denied entry by the security personnel, the official added. She then filed a complaint against her husband at the Balaji Nagar police station and spoke to the Commission of Police Bhushankumar Upadhyay in person, after which a probe was ordered.
According to the police, the woman constable and the man working in the postal department had first met and gotten to know each other last year in October during a government project and gradually developed a relationship. DCP Zone II Vivek Masal, the man in charge of the inquiry, has stated the man has since been moved to another quarantine centre in the city.
Nagpur's coronavirus positive cases count is currently standing at 1,719 with 1,296 people making a recovery and getting discharged for their homes. The city has also seen 15 patients succumb to the deadly effects of the fatal disease, which has left over 1 million people testing positive across the country.
