Kumar was working as a civil defence volunteer and arranged food for the poor during the lockdown.
“Arun Kumar did an excellent job during the whole coronavirus lockdown period. He worked in almost all the departments, whether in hospitals, distributing food and elsewhere,” Kejriwal said in a statement.
He succumbed to Covid-19 a few days ago while undergoing treatment at a hospital, it added.
