Calcutta: Two other people have been arrested in connection with the questionable case of COVID vaccination camps in Calcutta, a police officer said on Tuesday.
With the latest arrests, Kolkata police have so far arrested six people in the case, including bogus IAS officer Debanjan Deb who organized the city’s dubious COVID vaccination camps, he said. he declares.
“In a raid on Monday night, we picked up Deb’s cousin from the Naktala area and another 52-year-old man from the north of the city. Both were actively involved with Deb,” the officer said.
Deb’s cousin knew from the start that he was not an IAS officer and despite this, he continued to assist her in illegal activities, the officer said.
“The cousin even cheated on Deb. The other man was associated with a doctor in the Taltala area and was helping Deb administer the fake COVID vaccines to people who came to the camps,” he said.
Investigators also discovered that Deb, as an “IAS officer”, even raided near her office in the Kasba region after obtaining reports that adulterated gasoline was being sold, said said the police officer.
A report on the raid was published in a newspaper with Deb’s photo, he said.
“He also had an election where his employees voted. After the election, he declared himself the winner and also had this news published, mentioning that he had won the election of the Federation of Employees of West Bengal,” said the officer.
Deb was arrested last week for posing as co-commissioner of the Kolkata Municipal Corporation and running questionable vaccination camps.
Three of his associates were arrested on Saturday as police included the charge of attempted murder with other sections of the IPC against them.
