The complainant, O.P. Sharma, told reporters that he took his ill son for treatment to the J.P. Hospital where he received a cough medicine on a doctor's prescription.

‘An infection of the lungs or upper airway passages can cause a cough and is often triggered by mucus that drains down the back of the throat.’
