On her official Twitter handle, Tilak, a BJP legislator, wrote: “Today, me and my mother have been tested positive for Covid-19. We are both not showing any symptoms and have been advised by doctors to be under home quarantine and have thus self-isolated. All other family members have tested negative.”

Tilak said, “While we did have our first tests done immediately, the next day after my father passed away, we tested negative. We did a follow-up test on the fifth day wherein we tested positive. So, we are at home now and taking care of ourselves.”
