Earlier in the day , an employee of the State Bank of India (SBI), who traveled from Guwahati and tested positive had gone directly to SBI ,Khliehriat without undergoing Covid test as per guidelines laid down by the government .
The patient , a recently appointed branch manager of SBI Khliehriat in East Jaiñtia Hills district somehow managed to avoid the necessary tests at Byrnihat by showing his official ID stating that he would get himself tested at Civil Hospital in Shillong .
However , without undergoing any tests he directly went to his branch . It was finally with the intervention of the Local Durbar that he was sent to quarantine and finally tested positive .
The state government is likely to file an FIR against him for violating Covid -19 protocol and guidelines .
