DIRECTOR GENERAL (medical and health) B Nath on Thursday visited the Balrampur Hospital and took stock of the case-sheet of freedom fighter Trilok Singh Gupta, who allegedly died due to negligence by the hospital staff on April 22. He was admitted to the hospital on April 15.

Nath visited the hospital after the family members of the freedom fighter lodged a complaint about the negligence with the chief minister, Governor and other officials. An inquiry has already been set and probe into the matter is in process.
Nath took stock of the case-sheet and other relevant documents concerning the treatment of Gupta and also met officials of the hospital. Director Dr SS Srivastava was not available, as he had gone for a departmental meeting.

In his letter to the President, the freedom fighter’s son Awdhesh Gupta alleged that the hospital staff did not pay proper attention towards his father’s treatment nor did they care about his status as freedom fighter. 

“The inquiry is in progress and we would soon come to the conclusion about the allegations from the family of the freedom fighter,” said director Dr SS Srivastava when contacted over telephone.

Meanwhile, a staff nurse of the Balrampur Hospital has been suspended in connection with the incident of rape of a patient that took place in the night of April 5 and 6.
