Hubballi: Over 100 cops working in various police stations in Hubballi Dharwad Police Commissionerate have tested positive since January 3, sources said.

All the police staff who tested positive for COVID infection were asymptomatic, and a few families of those police staff were also infected, confirmed police sources.

Speaking to, Police Commissioner Labhu Ram said that by Saturday, almost all police personnel working in the police commissionerate were subjected to COVID testing. The step was necessitated following a few staff of a police station testing positive for COVID, he said.
