The under galleries which would be used at E, F, G, H and J Blocks would be properly segregated and secured from the balance areas,” he said.

According to the data, 544 Kolkata Police personnel have been infected with Coronavirus so far. Although 411 of these jawans have recovered while two jawans have died.
