Dharwad, August 07: Deputy Commissioner Nitish Patil has ordered a temporary closure of the Police Training Center, located on Kalaghatgi Road here after 101 trainees detected with Covid infection and 484 trainees had primary-level contact with infected people.
The deputy commissioner has also ordered that the trainees be retained at the center and not let out. “All the trainees will be provided food and stay facilities.
