Dr Subhash Batta said, “I saw the inquiry report on Tuesday morning and found that both the officers SMO Dr RK Karkara and deputy medical commissioner Dr Jasbir Singh had not mentioned their remarks about findings of the inquiry. Thus, I sent the report back to them to submit it with their statement on the findings.”

SMO Dr RK Karkara said, “I received a call from civil surgeon and I will sent back the details he wanted us to compile in the report by Wednesday.”

As per the information, inquiry report has not found Deepak Hospital guilty and has given a clean chit. In the report, it was mentioned that accident victims were not at all brought inside the hospital.

Hospital provided the ambulance to the accident victims and a doctor from Deepak Hospital saw the patients in the ambulance only.

In the report, it was also mentioned that doctor who examined the patients in ambulance found patients brought dead and the doctor who attended the patients in civil hospital also declared them brought dead.
