Placed under observation for COVID-19, Kollam Sub-Collector absconds; Case booked
Kollam: A case has been booked against Kollam Sub- Collector Anupam Mishra, who went missing after he was put under observation for suspected coronavirus infection. He was quarantined after he returned from a foreign visit.
Anupam Mishra has been under observation from March 19. When health department workers reached his official residence to check the status, he was not found there.
Although the health department authorities tried contacting him over phone, he was unavailable. Later that day, the Sub- Collector himself informed that he was in Kanpur, which was his native place. He had left without informing the district collector or the Chief Secretary. He is a member of the 2016 batch of IAS officials.
