As many as 800 more natives are scheduled to arrive from Mumbai late this evening. All these residents would come by a special train at Pathankot railway station. From there the officials of the Kangra administration would receive and bring them into the state.

Sources here said that out of 800 about 200 were residents of Kangra district while the remaining are from other parts of the state. All these residents would be sent to institutional quarantine for a period of 14 days in different parts of the state.

The residents of Kangra would be kept in institutional quarantine in Nurpur area of the district, the sources here said.

Earlier about 10 per cent of people, who came from Mumbai, had tested positive for corona infection. Many of them were symptomatic and so were tested by the authorities. Those who did not have any symptoms were kept in institutional quarantine.

The authorities are not taking any chances and would not allow any person coming from the hotspot areas to go to their homes before the completion of the 14-day institutional quarantine.
