In an unusual incident reported from Bihar's Arwal district, prominent personalities and public figures such as Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, Sonia Gandhi, Priyanka Chopra, and Akshay Kumar find their names on a list in the columns made for the names of people tested for COVID-19 at a community health centre in Bihar's Arwal district.
The local administration has ordered an inquiry after list showing several entries in the name of public figures went viral. After this shocking revelation, two computer operators have been suspended.
District Magistrate J Priyadarshini said the inquiry would look into how and on whose directive the data fraud took place. "This is a very serious matter. We are trying so hard to ramp up testing and vaccination and then such irregularities are happening. Not just in Karpi, we will look at all healthcare centres. An FIR will be lodged, we will take action and set a standard."
She said the matter came to light during a recent inspection. "Two operators have been removed, but I am of the opinion that others must also be probed," she added.
