With 1993 Delhi bomb blast convict Devinder Pal Singh Bhullar undergoing treatment on the first floor of Swami Vivekanand De-addiction Center, regular patients and their attendants are facing hassles due to elaborate security arrangements.

As police have virtually sealed the hospital complex and around 50 cops are deployed for Bhullar’s security, regular patients visiting the de-addiction centre are often stopped and questioned extensively by security men before letting them in.

Many attendants were seen requesting cops to allow them to move into the hospital. Even on Saturday many of them were not allowed.

Notably, the entire ground floor is utilised for treating the addicts, where a rush is seen throughout the day; whereas Bhullar is being kept at the psychiatry ward on the first floor.
