One of the committees constituted to inquire into the death of an infant due to the alleged negligence of the civil hospital staff submitted its report to deputy commissioner Priyank Bharti on Sunday.
Incidentally, both the committees are headed by additional deputy commissioner Parneet Bhardwaj. And, while Bhardwaj has submitted his report on the inquiry marked by the DC, he is yet to file the report on the panel constituted by the CM.
"The report of the committee constituted by the state government will be submitted to director, health services and family welfare, Dr Karanjit Singh on Monday," Bhardwaj said. Not willing to divulge any details on the inquiry conducted by him, Bhardwaj said the panel had recorded statements of all concerned persons and covered all aspects related to the case.
About the delay in filing the report, Bhardwaj contested the reports that he was on leave. He explained that on July 27, he had gone to Chandigarh to appear before the Punjab human rights commission in relation to a shelter home case at Budhyana village. Then, on July 28 he said he was in Delhi to receive a trophy from Union rural development minister Jairam Ramesh on behalf of the department of rural development and panchayat.
