Not only the civil hospital staff had shown the callousness in treatment of three day old girl child resulting in her death but the committee set up for inquring in to the matter too had gone non serious as it has missed the deadline fixed for submitting the inquiry report because the Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC) heading the inquiry had gone on leave on Saturday.
The committee formed on directions of chief minister Parkash Singh Badal and headed by ADC, Parneet Bhardwaj was supposed to submit the report by Saturday, when the deadline of three days fixed for submitting the report ends.
