PRAYAGRAJ: Taking a serious cognizance of the shocking incident where a couple was forced to carry the body of their 9-year-old son on their shoulders back to their village from SRN hospital, the state government on Thursday constituted a two-member panel to probe the incident.
Team of chief medical officer, Prayagraj, Dr Nanak Saran and principal of MLN Medical College, Prayagraj Dr SP Singh will probe the case and submit the report at the earliest.
The action came after the video of the incident went viral on social media.
Talking to TOI, Dr SP Singh said, “We have been recording the statements of all parties, including parents of the deceased boy and are conducting a detailed probe into the incident.”
He added, “Team members have also visited the house of the victim and recorded their statements. Along with the statements of health officials and employees on duty were also recorded at the MLN Medical College.”
A nine-year-old boy Shubham was electrocuted near a temple in Rampur Semhara village under Karchana police station on Tuesday. The policemen, who brought the body to SRN mortuary house, left the family after the post mortem.
As father Bajrangi Yadav failed to arrange Rs 2,000 to ferry the body of his son through ambulance to native village, he and his wife decided to take the body on their shoulders one by one and went straight to their village.
However, some people video-graphed the incident and made it viral on social media.
The incident exposed the callous attitude of the government departments, including health, police, administration and authorities on Thursday decided to assign duties to its staff at the mortuary so that such incidents are not repeated.
A joint team of traffic police, RTO and district authorities has also taken measures to fix the charges of ambulances engaged for ferrying bodies. Moreover, a team of district authorities also rushed to the village and talked to family members.
Meanwhile, father Bajrangi Yadav said, “No one came to help us when we were bringing back our son’s body to the village”.
Bajrangi also claimed that they don’t have Aadhar cards and as a result they do not get ration from PDS shop”. Senior cops were also verifying the duties of policemen assigned to take the body of a minor boy to postmortem house and their status when the parents were taking the body back to their village on their shoulders.
