Investigation will be done in the case of journalist’s death in Shamli, Deputy Chief Minister ordered
Lucknow. The outrage over the doctor’s death due to negligence in Shamli is not taking its name. There is continuous anger among journalists and they are pleading for justice. Taking cognizance of the matter, Deputy Chief Minister and Health Minister Brajesh Pathak has assured action after conducting an inquiry.
In fact, today in a program in Hazratganj, State President of Uttar Pradesh Association of Journalists Sarvesh Kumar Singh gave a memorandum to Deputy Chief Minister and Health Minister Brajesh Pathak and apprised him about the Shamli episode. The reader was informed through the memorandum that on May 19, young journalist Amit Mohan Gupta suffered a brain haemorrhage in Shamli. The relatives immediately took him to the nursing home of Dr. Mukesh Garg, the city’s doctor. But the relatives of the journalist could not pay the prescribed fees of the doctor. The fee was reduced by Rs 100. Hence the treatment was not given to the journalist. Due to lack of treatment, the journalist died in half an hour. This insensitive incident has shocked the entire journalist world and there is anger among the journalists.
In this matter, a demand has been made to the Deputy Chief Minister that strict action should be taken against the guilty doctor. The financial condition of the journalist’s family is very bad, as they could not even pay the fees to the doctor. Therefore, financial assistance should be provided to the victim’s family and a government job should be provided to one person of the family on compassionate grounds.
After listening to the matter, Deputy Chief Minister Pathak assured that he would take action after conducting an inquiry. A copy of the memorandum has also been sent to Director General Health and Medical, Divisional Commissioner Saharanpur and President IMA.
