Guidelines for Free Treatment of Accident, Burn, Acid Attack Victims Issued

Health Minister Satyendar Jain said burn, acid attack and accident victims to get free and mandatory treatment.

The move was aimed at encouraging people to take victims immediately to a nearest hospital to save the victims' life, even if it is a private hospital.

"Delhi government will bear the cost," Jain said in a tweet.

The government would pay the hospital expenses of any individual -- from Delhi or outside -- who is injured in an accident on any city road.
