On-duty health worker attacked in Rautahat, severely injured


RAUTAHAT: An on-duty health worker has been severely injured after he was attacked at a quarantine facility of Rajpur Municipality in the district, on Wednesday.

As many as 209 persons quarantined at Bairaiya mosque in the municipality — who had tested negative through the PCR method — were to be sent back home. However, the persons had to undergo RDT testing prior to leaving the quarantine as per prescribed protocol.

The injured health personnel has been identified as the assistant co-ordinator, Khursed Aalam, who was pelted with stones too.

Furthermore, the locals too participated in the vandalism, also destroying five motorcycles of the on-duty health personnel.

The health workers complained that although such incidents in the district have been on the rise, concerned authorities have not taken any action against those guilty.
