Rights body sends notice to Chhattisgarh government

Wednesday October 19, 2011 06:01:54 PM, IANS

New Delhi: The National Human Rights Commission has issued notice to the Chhattisgarh government after taking cognizance of media reports alleging that one person died and 25 others became victims of botched eye surgery at a government organised health camp in Durg.

The camp was organised between Sep 21 and 31 and 334 patients were operated upon. The operations were conducted as part of the National Blindness Control Programme.

Allegedly, the patients, mostly farmers, caught infection due to lapses in surgical procedure and lack of proper fumigation in the makeshift operation theatre.

The commission has asked for a report from the state government with specific information in the matter within four weeks.

The commission has also asked for the health status of each patient and the medical aid provided.
