The Kanpur administration ordered a probe into the allegation that cricketer Kuldeep Yadav was administered the Covid-19 vaccine at a place, allegedly a ‘guest house’, other than the hospital where he had booked a slot.

The Indian mystery spinner had received a dose on Saturday. He posted a photo of himself getting vaccinated and urged everyone to get the jab in order to fight against the coronavirus pandemic. “Get vaccinated immediately whenever you get a chance. Be safe because you need to be united in the fight against COVID-19,” the 26-year-old had tweeted in Hindi.

According to PTI report, Yadav was given a vaccine shot in the lawn of the Kanpur Nagar Nigam guest house, instead of Jageshwar Hospital in Govind Nagar for which he had taken an appointment, a senior official on condition of anonymity said.
