The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) on Friday ordered that none of its personnel would leave or enter Jammu and Kashmir for the next 15 days.
CRPF spokesman Neeraj Rathore said its personnel on leave outside J&K have been informed that their leave has been extended up to April 5 and they should not enter the UT up to this period.
“Similarly, all those personnel serving in J&K who had their leave sanctioned to join families have been advised to stay here and not leave the UT for 15 days,” the spokesman said.
Leave to serving personnel in the Valley to join their families would only be granted in emergencies.
The spokesman said medical intervention rooms have been made operational in all units of the force across J&K in view of the advisory to combat the spread of coronavirus.
Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir Lt Governor G C Murmu on Friday reviewed the Union Territory’s preparedness and arrangements for dealing with coronavirus outbreak and urged people to not panic, an official release said.
