The 18 year old Sitaram Varma had recently visited Pune while 40 year old CRPF man Y. S. Rao had been to Mumbai.

The nodal officer in charge of swine flu cases in Chhattisgarh has said that the cause of death is yet not definitely linked to the H1N1 virus. He said that Varma's throat swab has been sent to Delhi for the flu test.
