A man was nabbed on Wednesday for allegedly abusing and beating health workers for administering a Covid vaccine dose to his daughter who was brought to the immunisation centre by her mother, police said.
In a complaint to the police, health worker Nirmal Yadav said on July 29 she along with some Asha and Anganwadi workers had administered a vaccine jab to the girl at the immunisation centre in Nihalgarh village when her father, Harun, reached there and created a ruckus.
“The girl was vaccinated after her mother’s consent. But Harun not only abused us but also thrashed and threatened to kill us if we entered the village again. We somehow escaped,” she said in her complaint.
Based on the complaint, an FIR was registered against the accused under IPC sections 186 (obstructing public servant in discharge of public function), 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servant), 332 (voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from his duty), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 294 (abusing), the police said.
Harun was nabbed on Wednesday. During questioning he confessed to his crime, said Arvind Kumar, the SHO of Sadar, Tauru police station.
