Union minister Jitendra Singh placed himself in quarantine on July 14.

Singh, who is Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office, had visited J&K’s Bandipore along with Raina and another BJP leader, Ram Madhav. Raina said he was in Bandipore for 5 days following the murder of a BJP worker and his family members at the hands of terrorists. The J&K administration has begun contact tracing.
