New Delhi: In what could be seen as a slackness of the Uttar Pradesh government, National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) had sought a reply from the state Health Director General (DG) in connection with negligence of doctors nearly 10 months ago, but it has not got any response as yet. The Commission finally summoned the DG.

Sanjiv, an M Com student, Ghaziabad, was admitted to MMG hospital after he sustained severe injury in a road mishap on July 17 last year. In a sheer attitude of carelessness, the doctors declared him dead instead of treating him and sent his body to the morgue where his relatives later found him writhing in immense pain.

The relatives are reported to have demanded action against the slipshod doctors but the local administration did not pay any attention to them.

Acting on complaint, NHRC on August 26 asked for a report from the DG Health and Family Welfare Department in four weeks but in vain.

According to sources, the Commission continuously reminded the health officials to submit the report about the negligence of the doctors.

Finding no response, NHRC has summoned the DG Health to give explanation with all important documents on June 3, sources said.
