Max baby case: 2 IMA experts in hospital probe team

New Delhi, Dec 3  Two experts from the Indian Medical Association (IMA) have been included in the probe team set up by Max Healthcare authorities to investigate the case of a premature baby being wrongly declared dead, the hospital said today.

The case pertains to the birth of twins (boy and girl) on November 30. Both the babies were declared dead by the Max Hospital in Shalimar Bagh. However, the family later found the boy was alive.

“The expert group set up by Max Healthcare to investigate the circumstances and protocols followed regarding the premature delivery (23 weeks/5 months) of the twins and the subsequent declaration of death at Max Hospital, Shalimar Bagh, is working swiftly towards concluding their detailed investigations.

“Dr Arun Agarwal, Chairman, Ethic Committee, IMA and Dr Ramesh Datta, Joint Secretary, IMA, have been included as external experts in the group,” Max Healthcare said in a statement.

The investigation is expected to conclude by tomorrow and the findings are expected to be shared thereafter, it said.

Max Healthcare authorities had ordered an inquiry into the case on December 1, saying a doctor concerned had been “asked to proceed on leave immediately”.

The Delhi government has ordered its own probe into the shocking incident.

Health Minister Satyendar Jain had yesterday said that if the hospital was found guilty of medical negligence in its probe, it’s licence could be cancelled.

The mother was brought to the hospital from a nursing home in Paschim Vihar, police said.

The parents were earlier told by the hospital that both the babies were stillborn, and were handed to them in a polythene bag, but just before their last rites, the family found that the boy was alive, police said.

“We rushed the baby to a nearby nursing home in Pitampura, where he is on life support,” the father had earlier said.

Police have already registered a case of attempt to commit culpable homicide against two doctors.

Bhopal Gas Tragedy: 33 Years on, Victims Still Await Justice

New Delhi, Dec 3: Its been 33 years since Bhopal faced the worst industrial disaster, but the survivors are still struggling to get justice. The victims of 1984 Bhopal gas tragedy are still complaining of not being provided with proper medical facilities, better living conditions and employment.

Born after the 1984 disaster, Bhopal’s third generation is also suffering from ailments. Apart from that, the toxic waste lying in the defunct Union Carbide is yet to be disposed off. As per the reports of ANI, there are many children in the state who cannot sit or speak or hear, while many women are not able to conceive again.

Speaking to the news agency, a victim while narrating his ordeal said,”It is 33 years since the gas tragedy took place but we are still facing problems. We haven’t even received any kind of facilities from the government. The ministers in Bhopal do not care about us. They are busy in having fun.”

“Besides giving an ex-gratia of Rs 25, 000 we were not given anything. We are not even provided treatment in hospitals,” said another victim.

पैन-आधार जोड़ने के लिए सरकार दे सकती है 3-6 माह का समय, SC के फैसले का इंतजार

नई दिल्ली। सुप्रीम कोर्ट यदि आधार के पक्ष में निर्णय सुनाता है तो सरकार पैन कार्ड को आधार से जोड़ने के लिए तीन-छह माह का समय दे सकती है. उसके बाद सरकार के बिना आधार से जुड़े सभी पैन कार्डों को निरस्त करने की संभावना है. एक वरिष्ठ अधिकारी ने यह जानकारी दी है.

अधिकारी ने कहा कि इस निरस्तीकरण से सभी नकली पैन कार्ड समाप्त हो जाएंगे और बेनामी लेनदेन को शून्य किया जा सकेगा. आयकर विभाग द्वारा जारी पैन संख्या को अभी आधार से जोड़ने की समयसीमा 31 दिसंबर तक है.

सरकार ने सुप्रीम कोर्ट को संकेत दिया है कि वह इस समय सीमा को 31 मार्च 2018 तक बढ़ा सकता है. अधिकारी ने कहा कि शीर्ष अदालत के सरकार का फैसला बरकरार रखने पर सरकार इन कार्डों को आपस में जोड़ने के लिए तीन से छह माह का विस्तार दे सकती है.

नवंबर तक कुल 33 करोड़ पैन कार्ड धारकों में से 13.28 करोड़ को आधार से जोड़ा जा चुका है.
