The wife of a photographer, who died on Mumbai-Basti Shramik Special train on Tuesday travelled for 6 hours with her husband’s body from Orai to Lucknow. Later, it was found that the man has been tested positive of the novel coronavirus.

On Tuesday, the report was released and it sent the officers into a tizzy. About 200 people, including those in the coach, cops and doctors who came in contact with the body, will be tested.

KGMU spokesperson Dr Sudhir Singh said, “The postmortem house at KGMU has been closed for sanitization and the entire staff, including government doctors, have been quarantined. Their samples have been collected for testing.”

The GRP inspector said, “Vinod Kumar Upadhyay (44) of Gosainganj in Ayodhya, who worked as a photographer at the Gateway of India in Mumbai, was travelling on the train with his wife and a male relative. His wife told us that he slept on Monday night and did not respond when she tried to wake him up around 8.30 am on Tuesday.”

“After the train reached Lucknow, doctors examined Upadhyay at the station and pronounced him dead. The body was sent for an autopsy which could not ascertain the cause of death. His viscera has been preserved for forensic examination,” he added.

When asked if Upadhyay was given medical aid on the train or it was stopped at any station in between, Both Singh and RPF inspector DK Rana said they were not aware of what happened on the train.

“Three cops and other staff were present at the station when the body arrived. They were wearing personal protection equipment and have been quarantined as a precautionary measure. The platform and GRP offices are being sanitised,” Singh said.

Swab samples were taken before the autopsy.
