DHARWAD: A retired sub-inspector of the Suburban Police Station, who was tested positive for Corona infection, died on Monday morning.
Ramesh Kataraki, who was a resident of Hoysala Nagar in the city, was confirmed positive for the deadly infection a few days ago and had been admitted to KIMS Hospital for treatment. He, however, failed to respond to the treatment and died on Monday.
Since the retired officer died of Corona infection, his last rites will be conducted at the KIMS Hospital itself, said sources.
Kataraki had served in several stations in Hubballi-Dharwad district. He had three daughters.
