Uttar Pradesh: Govt teacher put on COVID duty 2 weeks after death in Muzaffarnagar

Two weeks after a government teacher succumbed to coronavirus, he was put on COVID-19 control room duty at the collector's office here apparently because authorities did not know about his death.

The incident came to light when a duty chart issued by district authorities showed Nand Kishor, a resident of Khanjahanpur village, posted at the control room of the collectorate from June 10 to 24, the official said.

The chart was issued as the authorities had not received the news of Kishor's death, he said.
