The Commission, on its own motion from cognizance of a media report stated that the Hospital made a blunder. They have declared a pregnant woman, HIV positive and declined treatment though she was under their treatment for the last six months. The hospital denied the treatment when she was brought to the hospital following labor pain on June 24, 2015.

The family was constrained to shift her to a private hospital in the town, as they did not provide an ambulance even against payment. Subsequently, she delivered a male child at a private hospital, which declared that she was not HIV positive.

"The contents of the press report, if true, amount to serious violation of human rights of the victim," observed the Commission. It has issued a notice to the Chief Secretary, Government of Haryana calling for a detailed report in the matter within four weeks.
