The Himachal Pradesh Police has charged a COVID-19 patient in Chamba with attempt to murder after he allegedly partied with his friends following his return from another district earlier this month.
DGP S R Mardi said that the patient infected his two-year-old daughter and two of his friends. Before he tested positive, he allegedly had a liquor party with his friends outside his house, and they also shared a cigarette. This act is a “suicidal act” by Mardi.
The police have also booked a Hamirpur resident who recently returned from Gujarat and called a barber to his house to cut his hair. He later tested positive, and the barber after visiting the patient continued to go to other houses and render his services.
