Bhubaneswar, Aug 10: The Commissionerate Police today arrested two persons whose telephonic conversation related to Covid-19 treatment in a Bhubaneswar- based Covid Hospital went viral recently.
The two persons were arrested and forwarded to court today after their interrogation last night and medical examination today, said police sources. One of them was the employee of Ortel Communication Limited.
The police swung into action after the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) last week lodged a complaint against an Odia news channel (not News 7) accusing the channel of spreading misinformation related to Covid-19. The channel had aired a purported telephone conversation between two anonymous persons related to Covid-19 treatment in a Bhubaneswar- based Covid Hospital.
