After spending several stressful days, Delhi Police constable Devender who along with his wife were found infected with coronavirus, were blessed with a baby girl. The constable is posted in north Delhi’s Jahangirpuri police station. The couple later tested negative for coronavirus.
Senior police officers visited Devender’s home on Thursday to congratulate the couple and thank him for doing his duty amid the coronavirus crisis.
“I got infected with coronavirus while on duty at C Block of Jahangirpuri. Of the police personnel who were stationed there, six were infected with the virus,” Devender said.
“More than myself I was more concerned about my wife as I was already admitted in hospital when she also got admitted in LNJP hospital after she too was tested positive. She was also due for her delivery,” he added.
“Everything went well and on May 8 I was blessed with a baby girl,” Devender said.
Police officer Varun Dalal said the constable is a “corona warrior” and many policemen went to his house to celebrate the birth of his baby.
“I feel privileged to have received such support and respect from my senior officials,” Devender said.
