Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday said that attacks on health workers will not be accepted.
"When the entire country is battling against COVID-19 and lakhs of corona warriors are ensuring the safety of people, attack on these warriors is a challenge to the management.
It will not be accepted in any situation," Yogi said.
Referring to Kanpur incident Yogi asked UP Police to nab the people who were involved in pelting stones on doctors and medical personnel, on a visit to a hotspot area in Kanpur.
Earlier in the day, a team of doctors and medical personnel were allegedly pelted with stones in an area in Kanpur, when they went to bring family members of a patient who had tested positive for coronavirus.
Police arrested five people for the alleged attack.
