‘A Hero’

"On a writ filed by Deepak Singh about politicians being involved in the illegal distribution of COVID medicines, etc, the Delhi High Court directed the Delhi Police to conduct an enquiry. In compliance with the court's order, the Delhi Police is conducting an enquiry on several politicians, including Srinivas. Today (Friday), a Crime Branch team went to IYC's office to record the statement of Srinivas," the Delhi Police told NDTV.

Srinivas’ team has been monitoring social media, where requests with #SOSIYC have been pouring in from relatives and friends of patients – all in desperate search for oxygen, hospital beds, remdesivir and blood plasma for their loved ones battling COVID-19.

The team of about 10 volunteers works in two shifts and is also engaged in food distribution. Last year, apart from helping migrant workers with ration, IYC had also helped workers by arranging transport to states like UP and Bihar.
