The deceased girl's family members alleged that she was refused admission by two private hospitals despite the Delhi government directions.

Nishtha's uncle Tarun said, "She had high fever and was vomiting, so we took her to a government hospital in Malviya Nagar but the doctors refused to treat her at the emergency and asked us to wait till the OPD started at 9 a.m. Suspecting she might have contracted dengue, we got the tests done at a private hospital where she tested positive for the disease."

After being refused admission by two private hospitals, Nishta was taken to Fortis hospital, where she died.
