In published release Livehindustan, PNB emphasized that it was not true that Kumar was asked by his superiors to stay in even though he was exposed to the corona virus.

The bank explained that leave will be given if the employee is truly infected for the benefit of the employee and to prevent other infections.

“The accusations that he made that he was forced to report for duty are completely unfounded,” complained PNB.

That’s why the manager came with an oxygen cylinder. However, he has kept quiet about his status under investigation due to non-performing loans.
