We found another tweet by Sudarshan News that suggested that the incident took place in Basti in Uttar Pradesh and mentioned that the district magistrate of Basti, Saumya Agarwal, had taken cognisance of the incident.
On Wednesday, 2 June, the Twitter account of DM Basti shared that an FIR had been registered against two persons and the ward boy seen in the video had been suspended.
Dr Anuj Kumar, chief medical officer of Basti reportedly suspended Hassan and ordered the termination of Kumar’s services.
In the video, it can be seen that Hassan filled the form with the details of an elderly man waiting for his COVID test while Kumar opened the test kit and packed it without taking the sample, the PTI report mentioned.
Officials said that this act would result in the “test not showing any valid result and spoiling the kit”.
The FIR against Kumar and Hassan has been registered under Section 188 of IPC (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) and Section 3 of the Epidemic Act, PTI reported quoting the police.
