Confirming it, Singh said, “Yes, unfortunately, it’s true and we have started medication.” Both Singh and his wife were in self-isolation at home.
The police chief has appealed to those who had come in contact with him recently to isolate themselves and, if necessary, undergo a test.
Singh, a 1987-batch IPS officer, and his wife had taken the first dose of Covid-19 vaccine and were scheduled to get their second dose soon, the officials said.
Doctors were monitoring the health of the police chief and his family, they added.
