A thief, who had stolen over 1,700 doses of COVID-19 vaccine in Haryana's Jind had returned the bag. The thief returned the bag with a note that read, "Sorry, I didn't know it was medicines for corona." The note, which was attached to the bag full of vaccines, was written in Hindi on April 22.
The accused has not been identified yet. The bag full of Covishield and Covaxin doses was stolen from the storeroom of Jind General Hospital.
The matter came to light after a sanitation worker of the hospital found the locks of the store and deep freezer broken this morning. The accused did not touch any other vaccine, medicine, cash, etc. in the store.
Later, a man came on a motorcycle and left the vaccines at a tea stall outside the Civil Lines police station. He told people at the stall that the package contained food for a police official at the station.
A case has been registered in connection with the incident and police hope that they will soon arrest the offender.
