Yogi Orders FIR Against 6 People For The Deaths Of Children In The Gorakhpur Hospital

Published on 23 August, 2017 at 1:20 pm By

The entire nation was gripped by shock as more than 60 children died between August 7 and August 11 at Baba Raghav Das Medical College (BRD Medical College) due to an alleged shortage of oxygen. It later turned out that the shortage of oxygen was allegedly caused by the carelessness of college authorities, therefore, the chief minister of the state, Yogi Adityanath had promised strict action against those responsible for the death of the children.

A few days ago, he sacked Dr.Kafeel Khan, the head of the encephalitis ward at the hospital and also formed a committee that was entrusted with the responsibility of finding the correct reason behind such a large number of deaths of children and the people responsible for them. The committee was also supposed to inquire into the role of the oxygen supplier and suggest action against those found responsible for such a massive tragedy. The government has, so far, maintained that the deaths were not caused by a shortage of oxygen but by the disease, Japanese Encephalitis.

Soon after the committee submitted its report, the Yogi Adityanath government ordered an FIR to be registered against 6 people including the supplier of liquid oxygen to the BRD Hospital and Rajeev Mishra, the suspended principal of the hospital. Reportedly, the two have been booked on charges of corruption and negligence. It is reported that Dr. Kafeel Khan will face more action for private practice.

Also, the government has removed Anita Bhatnagar Jain, additional chief secretary of medical education from her position. Meanwhile, Dr. Rajneesh Dube, head of the revenue department has been handed over the charge of the medical education department. The report, however, has not said anything about the role of Ashutosh Tandon, medical education minister of the Yogi government in the tragedy. He has, in fact, been advised to inspect medical colleges, address grievances and take necessary remedial actions.
