PTI, BAREILLY/LUCKNOW: At least 36 persons in Bareilly and adjoining Badaun districts of Uttar Pradesh succumbed to fever in the last 15 days, officials said Tuesday.

Health Minister Sidharth Nath Singh, who visited Bareilly, said the state government will do a "death audit" to find out the exact number of people who died due to fever. 

Taking note of the deaths, he ordered the suspension of Additional Director (Health) S K Agarwal and District Malaria Officer Pankaj Jain.

Finding lack of cleanliness during his visit, the minister also suspended district health officer Ashok Kumar and in-charge of Jagatpur Hospital, Sunita Bhardwaj.

The government has constituted three teams of doctors to look into the cases in Bareilly and Badaun, UP DG (Health) Padmakar Singh told reporters in Bareilly.

"Twenty persons have died in the past 15 days due to fever in Bareilly district," Chief Medical Officer, Bareilly, Vineet Kumar said.
