The Wellawaya Magistrate's Court yesterday suspended the hearing of a case after receiving information that an officer of the Colombo Crime Investigation Division who was infected with COVID-19 had visited the Wellawaya Magistrate's Court on October 27.

"Ten Police officers from Wellawaya and Uva Kuda Oya Police stations who were present at the court proceedings on that day were sent for self-quarantine yesterday.

These officers are to undergo PCR tests on Friday," the spokesman added.
