The UT State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission on Wednesday issued notice to the PGI and CTU in a complaint made by Anupama's parents seeking a compensation of Rs 85 lakh.
The petition alleged that on July 17, Anupama met with an accident with a CTU bus where her leg was crushed outside her school in Sector 18. She was taken to the advanced trauma centre of the PGI by the police authorities, where her left leg was bandaged by the doctor on duty.
According to Anupama's parents, bandaging was done in the most incompetent manner when an emergency operation was needed.
However, the required operation was never arranged and the daughter of the complainants continued to suffer resulting in her untimely demise on July 24.
Pankaj Chandgothia, counsel for Amit and Konika Sarkar (Anupama's parents), contended that it was a case of negligence.
He said the PGI had not yet given the complete medical file and OPD card of Anupama to her parents.
Accepting the contention, commission president justice Sham Sunder ordered the PGI for production of entire records before the court, failing which the said records would be liable to be seized by an officer of the court.
