Central forces deployed in parts of Mumbai to help police

May 21, 2020 21:17 IST

Central Armed Police Force personnel were deployed in some areas of Mumbai on Thursday to help the city police enforce lockdown to contain coronavirus. A company of the CRPF was also deployed at Dharavi, which is a Covid-19 hotpsot, along with local police. The Maharashtra government had sought central forces so that the overstretched police force could get some rest. More than 700 Mumbai Police personnel have contracted the infection so far and ten of them have died.
