Prime News, Karnataka, Health, Disease, Medical Oxygen, Judiciary, Mysuru/Bengaluru, May 13:- The High Court-appointed panel’s report that the Chamarajanagar district administration is to be blamed for the 24 deaths due to oxygen shortage has clearly vindicated Mysuru Deputy Commissioner Rohini Sindhuri’s stance. The report by the retired judge has given a clean chit to Rohini Sindhuri.
The report says the death in the tragedy was 36 and not 24 as mentioned by the district administration. The committee has held the Chamarajanagar administration guilty of negligence and it says charges against Sindhuri are from the truth. “There is no evidence whatsoever against the Mysuru DC and there is no complaint against her either. The 36 deaths occurred because of a shortage of oxygen. As per the records, the Chamarajanagar Government District Hospital did not have enough stock of oxygen which led to the tragedy on the said date.”
The committee has also recommended action against the guilty and members of the committee want it to be made public. (MR/KS)
