New Delhi: With victims of the Delhi High Court blast complaining of inadequate medical attention, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday ordered that funds and expertise required for treating the injured would be provided by the government.
   
The direction from Singh came after an assessment carried out by his Principal Secretary T K A Nair following complaints from some patients that the treatment was not adequate.
   
In the wake of such complaints, the Prime Minister had deputed Nair to carry out the assessment, PMO sources said.
   
Nair presented his assessment to the Prime Minister, they said.
   
The death toll in Wednesday's blast outside the Delhi High Court on Thursday rose to 12 with one of the victims succumbing to injuries at a hospital here.
   
A high intensity briefcase bomb ripped through the crowded reception area in the Delhi High Court on Wednesday .75 people were injured in the blast.

Nair on Thursday visited the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital to check whether the injured are getting proper medical care.
   
He met the doctors attending the injured, including four critically wounded persons admitted in RML's Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
   
He also met the relatives of the injured, said Vinod Bakshi, brother of Mridul Bakshi (34) who was injured in the blast outside the High Court.
   
Bakshi and others had on Wednesday interacted with the Prime Minister when he visited the hospital on Wednesday. Singh had assured Bakshi and others that he would ensure that the injured got proper medical care at the hospital and in case they encountered any problem, they could inform his office.
   
"The PMO official coming to the hospital was a follow up to the Prime Minister's promise to the relatives. He has sent the officer to specifically meet the relatives of those admitted in the ICU," a doctor at RML said.
   
Bakshi said he had a tough time in finding the whereabouts of his brother, who had gone to High Court in connection with a case related to his company.
   
"I came to the hospital thrice. My brother was listed in the 'unknown' category of victims. He was in the ICU. After a long wait, we were allowed to check whether any of our relatives was there and I found him there with wounds all over his body," Bakshi said.
