Assam: Covid positive patient found dead in Dibrugarh footpath in mysterious condition
A dead body of a COVID positive patient was found in a mysterious condition from the AMCH footpath in Jalan Nagar area of Dibrugarh on Saturday.
Dibrugarh Police recovered the body and informed that the deceased was 54-year-old man.
The body was later identified by his family members as Bhim Bhuyan of Romai tea estate.
It may be mentioned that recently, a post was shared on social media that an ambulance driver (Irfan Khan) saved the life of Bhim Bhuyan by providing him oxygen in an ambulance.
Sources said the ambulance driver took the COVID positive patient to Don Bosco COVID care centre for admission and later was referred to AMCH.
Talking to TNT-The Northeast Today, Ambarish Borthakur, manager of Romai tea estate said, “On May 27, our staff Bhim Bhuyan who was found COVID-19 positive was shifted to Don Bosco COVID Care Centre but was not admitted to the Centre and was referred to AMCH for admission. On Saturday his family members went to Don Bosco COVID Care Centre to enquire but were told he was shifted to AMCH”.
Borthakur added, “His family members could not find him at AMCH and complained to us. The police later found an unidentified body of a man from the footpath of AMCH road identified as Bhim Bhuyan’s. This is clearly a medical lapse. We have asked for an inquiry into the matter. ”
Meanwhile, Dibrugarh Deputy Commissioner Pallav Gopal Jha has ordered an inquiry into the matter.
“I know little about the incident and have asked the Dibrugarh SP for an inquiry into the incident,” Jha said.
