When the vaccination was underway, the father of a student noticed that the nursing student was not changing the syringe and raised an alarm.

The nursing student defended himself stating that he has one syringe to vaccinate all students.

"I did what I was asked to do. The person who delivered the materials (vaccines and other kits) gave a single syringe," said the nursing student.

An inquiry was initiated against Dr. Rakesh Roshan, the District Immunisation Officer who was in-charge of sending the vaccination team.
