Meera Mehta, 53, broke down when she saw the news of the Delhi high court blast on TV. This despite the fact that none of her relatives or known ones were present at the blast site on Wednesday.

Last year in February, Mehta went through the same trauma that families of blast victims are going through now.

Mehta, a resident of Rohini, lost her 21-year-old son Aditya in the German Bakery blast in Pune in February 2010 after he couldn’t get proper medical treatment at the hospital.

On Thursday, Mehta visited RML Hospital to advise families of victims. “I have come here to request the relatives of the blast victims to carefully watch the treatment. Maximum deaths in blast cases are due to medical negligence,” she said.

“I know how much it pains. I lost my son due to the negligence of doctors. He could have been saved had he been given proper care,” added Mehta.

Aditya, an engineering student in Pune, was inside German Bakery on the fateful day. He succumbed to his injuries at Pune's Jehangir Hospital, three days after admission. “I realised that he wasn’t being treated properly. And three days later doctors declared him dead.”
