3 children die in Raipur hospital; CM Raman Singh orders probe


Three infants died in a government-run BR Ambedkar Hospital due to alleged drop in oxygen pressure on Sunday night.

The state health department has ordered a probe and Chief Minister Raman Singh has expressed regret over the deaths.

Meanwhile, the police have arrested the oxygen cylinder operator.

A team of doctors from the central government has, however, backed the Yogi Adityanath government's view that the oxygen shortage did not lead to the death of any child.

"No one responsible for this tragic incident will be spared", said CM Raman Singh.

Ohio Black Republicans back Trump's statements about Charlottesville violence
James Alex Fields, 20, of Maumee, Ohio, and a Nazi sympathizer, has been charged with murder and other offenses in Heyer's death. Tim Scott of SC was the seventh African-American ever elected to the Senate, and the first from the South since Reconstruction.

State health secretary R Prasanna said oxygen pressure was low and the misconduct of an operator-mechanic is to be blamed but he ruled out any disruption in the supply of oxygen to the neo-natal intensive care unit and paediatric ward.

Prasanna also said that the Chief Medical Officer and Medical Superintendent immediately intervened and sorted the issue. "The death of children is due to illness whose information will be shared shortly".

While relatives claimed the children died due to irregular oxygen supply, health officials denied the charge and claimed the deaths were because of different reasons.

The deaths in Raipur comes days after more than 70 children were killed under similar circumstances at Baba Raghav Das Medical College Hospital in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh.

The shortage of supply was reportedly because the hospital had not cleared their dues with the company that supplied oxygen to the hospital.
