The suspension of Dr RC Gupta came after the authorities shared the preliminary findings with the CM’s office in Lucknow.

A government spokesperson said the CM suspended him with immediate effect. “CM has said the government was committed to provide best medical facilities to the people. The insensitive doctors will be dealt with iron hands for their slackness in their duty,” he said.

On Monday, the hospital’s emergency section refused to admit Sunil Kumar’s son, Ansh, neither did the staff provide the father with any assistance to carry the boy to a children’s medical centre where he was suggested to go.

The boy died on his father’s shoulder when he was dashing on foot to the children’s hospital, 250 metres away.
