The commission took suo motu cognizance of a media report narrating the ordeal of 10-year-old boy Bilal, who was made to run from one big hospital to another for treatment of a foot injury.

"The contents of the media report, if true, raise serious issue of violation of human rights of the victim," the NHRC observed.

Taking a serious view of the matter, the Delhi Medical Council has suspended the registration of four doctors of two hospitals, Hindi Rao and Safdarjung and a case registered against the quack.
