Sangrur, August 26

Panic gripped locals after used PPE kits were found dumped on the main road near Nadampur village. The callousness has raised serious questions on the working of the Health Department. Trucks loaded with PPE kits were not being checked by the police, the residents alleged.

"On seeing the PPE kits, we informed health officials and the police," said Darshan Singh, a Nadampur resident. Some villagers feared that it might spread the virus in their area.

"In our area, there is no big hospital. Trucks coming from Patiala might have dumped the kits," alleged Kulwant Singh, another area resident. Punjab Pollution Control Board SDO Sachin Singla said they had got the kits removed with the help of a Ludhiana-based company, adding that the matter was being investigated. — TNS
