Will Bengaluru be sealed down due to coronavirus? Fake says Police Commissioner


Bengaluru, Apr 10: Following the complete clampdown in two areas in Bengaluru due to COVID-19, there was news that similar sealing exercises would take place in other parts of the city as well.

The west division police sealed down the Padarayanapura area and its surrounding areas within JJ Nagar police station limits as two more cases tested positive for COVID-19. The BBMP commissioner said that they were in the process of sealing down Padarayanapura and its surrounding areas including Bapuji Nagar to prevent the spread of the virus further.
