Patna/IBNS: Names of dignitaries like Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, Sonia Gandhi and Priyanka Chopra appeared on a list of people supposedly vaccinated against Covid-19 at Bihar's Arwal district, thanks to a shocking case of data fraud.

Two computer operators have been suspended after lists of people jabbed at Karpi cmmunity health centre that were uploaded on the vaccination portal were recently checked.

The list showed multiple entries in the name of public figures, including Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, Sonia Gandhi, Priyanka Chopra and Akshay Kumar.

Embarrassed over viral videos showing these lists, the local administration has ordered an inquiry.

District Magistrate J Priyadarshini said the inquiry would look into how and on whose directive the data fraud happened.

"This is a very serious matter. We are trying so hard to ramp up testing and vaccination and then such irregularities are happening. Not just in Karpi, we will look at all healthcare centres. An FIR will be lodged, we will take action and set a standard," she told the media.

She said the matter was revealed during a recent inspection.

"Two operators have been removed, but I am of the opinion that others must also be probed," she added.
