Following the man’s death, his family members and neighbours protested and refused to hand over the body to police for post-mortem.

Police, quoting an FIR registered on a complaint filed by the man’s father, said: “Sonu and Monu, residents of Mant Mula area, were attacked by Raees and his four accomplices near Ravi hospital on Thursday. While Monu managed to flee, Sonu received serious injuries. He was then rushed to the district hospital by passersby.”

“After administering first aid, doctors and para-medical staff at the hospital did not attend to Sonu properly. They were busy watching the T20 cricket match between India and West Indies. The para-medics gave him some pain killers when the match was over. Sonu breathed his last on Friday morning,” the FIR said.

Family members claim Sonu wasn’t given any treatment, except being put on saline drip. They alleged that though they urged the hospital authorities to refer him to Agra for treatment, the request fell on deaf ears.

According to Sonu’s family members, he was administered some drugs next morning at about 6 am but he succumbed to his injuries 55 minutes later.

A media report mentions that a preliminary inquiry conducted by the Chief Medical Superintendent (CMS), Dr KP Garg, indicated negligence on the part of three doctors and a nurse. He said available records clearly indicate the doctor on duty had failed to call a specialist to examine the patient.

“On the basis of these accusations and scrutiny of various records, I’ve written to the Health Secretary to initiate action against three doctors and a nurse”, he said.

Clearly, this shows the height of callousness that exists in our state-run hospitals and other medical institutions.
