A team of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Thursday (11 June) visited the LNJP Hospital to take stock of its functioning and make a spot inspection of the facilities in wake of allegations that there is mismanagement and Covid patients are being denied admission and treatment.

NHRC member Jyotika Kalra said: "We have come here to take stock of the situation on the complaints of the patients regarding discrepancies in availability of beds on Delhi corona app and in hospitals."

The NHRC took suo moto cognizance of the matter.

Kalra enquired about the viral video of a dead body on the floor at the hospital but authorities said that it was due to malfunctioning of the lift.

The NHRC team inspected the wards and kitchen of the hospital.

The Commission has already issued notice to the Delhi government and Union Health & Family Welfare Ministry on Wednesday to submit a report, within ten days, on the healthcare facilities and related issues in the national capital.

The five member team, led by the NHRC Member, also comprised an Assistant Registrar (Law), a DSP, a Inspector and a Doctor on the panel of the Commission.
