Barely an hour after he held a meeting with 17 doctors and MBBS students at the medical superintendent's office, newly appointed director of the Rohtak PGIMS Dr KB Gupta offered to resign citing personal reasons.

However, there was no official communication about his resignation as pro-vice-chancellor VK Jain said he had not received the resignation yet.

Talking to Hindustan Times, Gupta said: "I have just expressed my problems to the vice-chancellor. I cannot handle so many departments at one time and I am planning to leave the post due to personal reasons."


Coming in the support of the hospital staff who have been accused by Neelam's family members of negligence and misbehaviour, 600 post graduate doctors and interns held several meetings to challenge the registration of criminal cases against doctors.

But after calls from the senior doctors, many of them joined their duty. Sources said the junior doctors were holding meetings to go on strike if the first information report lodged against the hospital staff was not withdrawn.


Sources told Hindustan Times that health minister Anil Vij was likely to visit Kharak Ramji village of Jind district to meet the family members of deceased Neelam. The health minister will talk to the family to know the reason behind Neelam and her newborn's death at the hospital.

Following Vij's letter to director general of police Ashok Singhal and Rohtak superintendent of police Shashank Anand, the FIR was lodged against the hospital staff at the PGIMS police station, three days after the incident.
