A team of doctors and medical staff were attacked by a mob in Moradabad’s Nawabganj area in UP when they went to take a person suspected of COVID-19.

The mob apparently also pelted stones on the police officials who came to rescue the health workers.

After the incident, the police has detained 10 people. The accused have been booked under the National Security Act and UP CM Yogi Adityanath has ordered strict action against those involved in the incident.

He also criticised the attack in a series of tweets.

This is not the first incident of health workers being attacked by a mob. Similar incident happened in Indore, when some health workers, who had gone to collect the samples of coronavirus suspects were attacked by a mob.
