BHOPAL: A truck carrying over two lakh Covid-19 vaccines was found abandoned by the roadside near Kareli Bus Stand in Narsinghpur district of Madhya Pradesh on Saturday, police said. The truck was loaded with as many as 2,40,000 doses of Covaxin, they added.

The Kareli Police had received information that a truck had been left by the roadside for a long time, but the truck's driver and conductor were missing.

On receipt of information, Kareli Police reached the spot and while examining the truck, they found as many as 2,40,000 doses of Bharat Biotech's Covaxin.

"The estimated cost of these vaccines was found to be approximately Rs 8 crore. When police traced the driver's mobile location, his phone was found in bushes near the highway. The air condition of the truck was in a working condition which means doses are safe. We are looking for the driver and conductor of the truck, but they are untraceable as of now," Sub Inspector from Kareli Police Station Ashish Bopache said.
