Police have arrested the 32-year-old man

Unable to get his shot of the Covid-19 vaccine, a 32-year-old man allegedly beat up the storekeeper of Atpara Upazila Health Complex in Netrakona on Tuesday.

Nurul Amin, native of Mobarakpur village in Atpara upazila, has been arrested, police said on Wednesday.

Sources at the Atpara Upazila Health Complex said the vaccination drive began at the centre on Tuesday morning, but it ran out of Covid jabs by noon. 

When Mirza Ataur Rahman Jewel, the storekeeper of the hospital, came out and announced that they were out of vaccine shots to people waiting in the queue to get the jab, Nurul got agitated and attacked him.

Upon receiving information, police rushed to the spot and arrested Nurul.

Md Zafar Iqbal, officer-in-charge of Atpara police station, said a case had been filed against Nurul in this regard. 

"He will be produced before a court on Wednesday," he said.
