Mr. Jadhav added that the government would conduct further inquiry into the incident.

The cycle pump had been used as a substitute for carbon dioxide insufflator at the sterilization camp at Banarpal community health centre on November 28.

The government earlier imposed blanket ban on such camps in the state and removed the operating surgeon from its panel.
