GARHWA: Seven well being employees of the Garhwa sadar hospital had been faraway from their responsibility after a video went viral by which they had been seen asking for a bribe of Rs 2,500 from the kin of a pregnant lady for her supply.
Garhwa civil surgeon Dr Kamlesh Kumar on Tuesday mentioned, “Taking immediate motion after the video went viral, seven employees of the labour room had been faraway from responsibility.”
He added, “Additional motion might be taken towards them after a five-member enquiry staff which has been constituted to probe the matter, submits its report within the subsequent three days.”
Sources mentioned family of the girl admitted her to the hospital on Thursday after she had labour pains. The in-charge of the labour room, Neelu Kumari, together with different well being employees requested Rs 2,500 for her supply. In addition they threatened to show her out of the hospital until the quantity is paid.
Quickly after the incident, a political employee, Chandan Jaiswal, wrote a letter to Garhwa DC Rajesh Kumar Pathak, urging him to take strict motion towards Kumari. “At a time when persons are reeling underneath the Covid-19 pandemic, her behaviour is shameful and doesn’t need to be excused,” Jaiswal mentioned.
