An Inspector of Delhi Police Special Cell has succumbed to coronavirus at the Max Hospital in Saket. He was 49 years old.

The Special Cell Twitter handle on Wednesday put out a condolence message for the decreased inspector. As many as 10 Delhi Police personnel have died due to Covid-19 so far. Of the 2,000 Delhi Police personnel who have tested positive so far, around 1,300 have successfully recovered.

A great warrior, recipient of Police Medal for gallantry, he brought laurels for @DelhiPolice. His untimely demise is irreplaceable loss for the organization. My deepest condolences," he tweeted.
