The galleries at the Eden Gardens are opened up for quarantine facilities for the Kolkata Police.

Kolkata police has requested the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) to make use of the under galleries as a makeshift quarantine facility for police personnel on urgent basis.

There was an emergent meeting held on Friday at Lal Bazaar with CAB officials and thereafter a joint inspection was undertaken at Eden Gardens.

Among the CAB office bearers, President Avishek Dalmiya and Secretary Snehasish Ganguly were present during the inspection.

It has been decided that under galleries of E, F, G and H blocks would be used to set up such facilities. In case, more space is required, then J block might also be used.

Such areas would be thoroughly segregated as a safety measure.

Since the administrative functioning majorly happens at Club House, adjacent blocks (B, C, D, K and L) would not be used for it, allowing the association to use them for conducting its activities and/or for its administrative works.

"It is our duty to help and support the administration in this hour of crisis. The quarantine facility would be used for police personnel who are COVID warriors. The under galleries which would be used at E, F, G, H and J Blocks would be properly segregated and secured from the balance areas. The arrangement agreed between Kolkata Police and CAB would ensure that areas used for cricket and administrative activities remain unaffected," said Avishek.

The groundsmen and other staff would be shifted to the dormitories and other safer spaces in B, C, K and L blocks inside the stadium.
