Srinagar, April 15 (GNS): The samples of a beggar, who recently died outside Chest Disease hospital, have returned negative for novel coronavirus.

The deaf and dumb beggar’s body was recovered near Chest Disease Hospital, one among the health facilities presently used exclusively for the Covid-19 management.

Sources told GNS that samples were taken to see if the person had contracted the dreaded disease. “The man was always encircled by dogs and he would feed them also. Since cases of coronavirus transmission to animals cannot be ruled out, the samples were taken to confirm if he died of the virus and incase it turned to be so, the dogs in the area would have to be culled to prevent the spread of the disease,” they said.

Police have already sought information regarding the deaf and dumb whose body was recovered at Malteng Dalgate.

“He was begging in the area since last 15 years. Age about 40-45 years, Complexion - black (beard on face) & height 5 feet 5 inch. The dead body was sent  for the autopsy to PCR and legal formalities have been initiated,” a police spokesman had said, adding, “If anybody has any information regarding the identity of the dead body may kindly inform Police Station R.M.Bagh Srinagar on 9596770853 or PCR Srinagar on 9596222550, 9596222551, or Police Control Room Kashmir on " Dial 100".
