Kolkata Police seeks Eden Gardens’ facility for quarantine unit | Cricket News – Times of India


- Advertisment -

KOLKATA: With an alarming rise in Covid-19 cases, the Kolkata Police on Friday requested the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) to make use of the spaces under the galleries for makeshift quarantine facility for police personnel on urgent basis.
An emergency meeting on this issue was held at police headquarter Lal Bazaar which was attended by CAB officials too. Thereafter a joint inspection was undertaken at Eden Gardens. It has now been decided that spaces under galleries of E, F, G and H blocks would be used to set up such facilities. However, in case, more space is required, then the J block might also be used.
Such areas would be thoroughly segregated as a safety measure also.
It was decided that since the association’s administrative functions are majorly done at Club House, the adjacent blocks (B, C, D, K and L) would not be used for it.
There have been cases of police personnel succumbing to coronavirus in the city and even there were cases of protests inside the force against inadequate preventive measures being provided to them.
“It is our duty to help and support the administration in this hour of crisis. The facility will be used by personnel who are Covid-19 warriors,” CAB president Avishek Dalmiya said.
It might be recalled that former CAB and current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly had earlier offered Eden Gardens’ indoor facility and the players dormitory to the West Bengal government to create a temporary medical facility to combat the pandemic.
“If the government asks us, we will certainly hand over the facility. Anything that is needed for the hour, we will do it. There is absolutely no problem,” Ganguly was quoted as saying in late March.
