Ambulance denial case: NHRC issues notice to UP government

Railway Board

The National Human Rights Commission, NHRC has issued a notice to the Uttar Pradesh government after a labourer had to carry his teenage son’s body on his shoulders as he was allegedly denied an ambulance by a hospital in Etawah district.

The Commission took suo motu cognisance of media reports and issued the notice to the state’s chief secretary.

The Commission has observed that the report is painful and indicative of insensitive and negligent attitude of the doctors at the hospital where most of the visitors are from poor families.

The commission has sought a detailed report from the chief secretary within four weeks, including information on ambulance services offered by the government-run hospital.
