The International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) has been locked down as 22 on-duty security personnel have tested positive for novel coronavirus.
Crimes Tribunal Prosecutor Zead-Al-Malum told the media of locking down the ICT on Tuesday.
He said nearly 22 Armed Police Battalion (APBn) personnel at two tribunal adjacent barracks got infected with the virus.
"They have gone into self-isolation. The entire tribunal building has been locked down as at least 17 infected APBn members are still living at the barracks," said the prosecutor.
He also called for disinfecting the International Crimes Tribunal immediately.
Deputy Registrar of the Crimes Tribunal Amit Kumar Dey said most of the security personnel were getting better. "We the employees of the ICT are doing office from home for the time being" he added.
A security member at the tribunal police barrack tested positive for Covid-19 on April 24. The member could possibly have infected the others.
