Chandigarh: A thief who had stolen a bag containing more than 1,700 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine has returned the bag in Haryana’s Jind following a change of heart.
While returning the haul, the accused also left a note saying he didn’t know about the contents of the bag while whisking it away.
“Sorry, I didn’t know it was medicines for corona,” the thief attached a note written in Hindi to the returned bag full of Covishield and Covaxin doses.
The cops are now tracking the thief and have registered a case into the theft from the Jind General Hospital’s storeroom.
The police suspect the thief may have stolen the vaccines after mistaking them to be the anti-viral drug Remdesivir.
