"Three maternity deaths were reported there this year-one in January and two in July," Dr Bhalla said, adding the hospital had not sent the records pertaining to these deaths to his office.  Stating that the hospitals in the district were required to provide details about deaths of patients during treatment to the district health authorities, Dr Bhalla, however, said this was not a raid.

 
"The district administration was concerned over the development and wanted us to inquire because of which a team was constituted and sent to obtain the records from the hospital," he said. However, they were prevented from entering the hospital by the residents of the area comprising supporters of the hospital owners.

"It is still not known how the information about our visit leaked out, but the way in which the owners and the residents reacted, only shows that they anticipated that the facility would be sealed," Dr Bhalla said.

 He added that the deputy commissioner would be approached for help in obtaining the records from the hospital. "Strict action will also be taken against those found guilty of leaking the information about our plan to visit the hospital."
