Press Trust of India  |  Shimla 

A 64-year-old woman who tested positive for coronavirus in Himachal Pradesh's Kangra district was on Saturday booked for allegedly flouting norms and spreading the disease, police said.

An FIR has been registered against the woman under IPC Section 270 (malignant act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life) at Shahpur police station, police spokesperson Khushal Sharma said.

The woman and a 32-year-old man of Harchakkian tehsil were on Friday found infected with the disease.

While the man had come from Singapore, the elderly woman arrived here from Dubai a few days ago.
