It may be underlined that Khullar returned from his US visit on Friday and was advised to stay isolated till 04 April i.e. 14 days. A poster reading ‘home quarantine’ was pasted in front of Khullar’s and Gupta’s official residences in Sector 16, Chandigarh.

Gupta’s daughter returned from the US early morning Saturday. As precautionary measure Gupta announced to continue his to work from even though rest of his family members are unaffected as none of his family members came in touch with her after she landed.

Sharma’s appears a crucial case.
