 Reminder Sent to Delhi Government By NHRC

A reminder was sent to the Delhi government by the National Human Rights Commission after it failed to respond to a notice over the death of four patients at a hospital when oxygen supply failed in the intensive care unit.

"NHRC is yet to receive a response from the Delhi Government on its notice seeking a report about the alleged death of four patients at Sushruta Trauma Centre due to interruption in oxygen supply in the ICU," a statement from NHRC said.


The incident occurred Dec 12 last year.

"A notice was issued to the Delhi government through its health secretary, calling for a detailed report on the matter within two weeks," the statement said.

"Having received no response, the Commission has issued a reminder on Feb 5, 2013 to the health secretary, Delhi government, to submit the requisite report within four weeks."
