The court asked AIIMS to pay the amount within a month.

Family members of Asha Mathur had alleged she was brought to AIIMS for undergoing an angiography test to determine the percentage of blockages in her arteries and veins.

They said after the test results, Asha was advised to undergo angioplasty, a procedure used to dilate narrowed blood vessels by inserting a balloon-tipped catheter.

Asha died soon after the operation began and her death was solely due to negligence on the part of the institute, they alleged.
