A 51-year-old Navi Mumbai police constable succumbed to Covid-19 early on Sunday after over a week-long battle with the infection.

“Khot had previously undergone angioplasty which put him under a high-risk category. He succumbed to the virus during his treatment on Sunday morning. He is survived by his wife and two children,” the officer from Navi Mumbai police station said.
Khot is the 10th police personnel from the city police to have lost his battle with Covid-19.
