Andhra Pradesh: Infuriated at the harsh reply during a review on Covid-19, Guntur district collector I Samuel Anand Kumar directed the suspension and arrest of medical officer working at the Nandendla primary health centre.

The incident occurred during the review meeting held at Narsaraopet Town Hall on 10 September. The collector expressed displeasure over the performance of the district medical and health department in the Narsaraopet division.

As soon as the review meeting began, Samuel Anand Kumar sought the reasons for the increasing number of Covid-19 cases and wanted to know the problems faced by the doctors.

In response, Doctor said, "though I am doing hard work at ground level to check the spread of Covid-19 cases, my efforts are not being recognised. We want our hard work to be recognised,"

Miffed by this reply, the angry collector directed the DMHO Dr J Yasmin to suspend doctor and directed Nasaraopet DSP Veera Reddy to arrest him.

The police officials later shifted doctor to Narasaraopt DSP office. DSP M Veera Reddy said revenue officials had not filed any complaint against doctor.
