Gorakhpur: Death toll reaches 415 since August at BRD Medical College

Gorakhpur: Death toll reaches 415 since August at BRD Medical College”

The UP Special Task Force on Tuesday arrested a former principal of the government-run medical college and his wife allegedly in connection with the deaths of scores of children.

An FIR was lodged against him and six others earlier this week and a non-bailable warrant was issued by a fast track court on Friday.

The PILs have demanded a probe by a retired judge of the High Court into the deaths of children at the BRD Medical College and have alleged that the deaths were caused by a paucity of medicines and laxity in the treatment of children.

Out of the 16, one child died due to the deadly encephalitis. Mishra was suspended as principal of the medical college on August 12 after the deaths were reported.

Khan, a paediatric and nodal officer of the 100-bed AES (acute encephalitis syndrome) ward in the hospital, has been accused of dereliction of duty and not informing seniors and the administration of the paucity of oxygen, which led to numerous deaths.

Mishra has been accused of sitting over bills of the vendor supplying oxygen.

As many as 296 children died this month at the Baba Raghav Das (B.R.D.) Medical College Hospital here, its Principal P.K. Singh said on Wednesday.

With this, the death toll in the hospital has touched 1,269 so far this year.

The BRD Medical College drew global attention when more than 70 children, including infants, died at the hospital within a span of a week in August.

Earlier, giving a break-up of the causalities at the hospital, Dr. Singh said 37 children died on August 27 and 28, of whom 26 died in the neo-natal ICU (NICU) and 11 in the encephalitis wards.
