Dozens of children die in India hospital allegedly due to oxygen shortage

At least 49 children have died at a government hospital in northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh in the past one month, officials said Monday, China's Xinhua news agency reported. "During probe, the parents informed that there was delay in providing oxygen and medicine due to which the children died due to lack of adequate supply of oxygen", Jain said in the report.

The state government has lodged First Information Reports against two doctors already. The result of this was that the government removed the District Magistrate Ravinder Kumar along with Medical Officer of the district and Chief Medical Superintendent of the hospital.

The city magistrate of Farrukhabad lodged a police complaint September 4 against the CMO and chief medical superintendent of the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital. However, not satisfied with the findings of the report, he ordered a separate enquiry by the additional district magistrate who mentioned "death because of lack of oxygen" in his report.

The deaths of children in Farukkhabad, coming within a month of the deaths in Gorakhpur, expectedly unleashed a political war of words. It is without any basis to blame (the deaths on) shortage of oxygen.

A total of 290 children died at Baba Raghav Das (BRD) Medical College in Gorakhpur in August.
