Amid the controversy over death of veteran parliamentarian and former Union minister E Ahamed, the National Human Rights Commission, NHRC has directed the Delhi police commissioner and the medical superintendent of Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital to submit within four weeks an Action Taken Report on a complaint regarding withholding information about his death
Mr. Ahamed had suffered a cardiac arrest on 31st of January in Parliament during the President’s address on the eve of the Budget presentation. He was rushed to the RML Hospital, where he died a few hours later.
The complaint said that shortly after Mr. Ahamed was brought to the hospital, his attendants were told by the doctors that they were not able to revive him. However, they alleged that events took a turn for the worse after the visit of Jitendra Singh, the minister-in charge of the Prime Minister’s Office, to the hospital.
Shortly, after this visit, Mr. Ahamed was shifted to the ICU and entry to even his immediate relatives was barred. It alleged that the police had to intervene finally on behalf of Mr. Ahamed’s family.
