The vil­lages in­clude Ghu­lar, Ghugrali, Seh, Tandey and Tosan. As per Sam­rala sta­tion house of­fi­cer Sukhwinder Singh Cheema, as many as four pa­tients have tested pos­i­tive from Ghu­lal vil­lage, whereas two cases have come to fore from Ghun­grali vil­lage and one each from Seh, Tandey and Tosan. “The step has been taken as a pre­ven­tive mea­sure to cur­tail the fur­ther spread of the dis­ease to other ar­eas. But peo­ple here were wise enough and main­tained their dis­tance from the Nanded re­turnees,” the SHO said. A 55-year-old Nanded re­turnee, re­sid­ing in one the vil­lages, said that the gov­ern­ment had made mis­take by not test­ing them on the day of their ar­rival.
