New Delhi:

The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court on Friday sought a report from the Uttar Pradesh government and the state director general of Medical education in child deaths in Gorakhpur’s BRD Medical College.

The high court asked to specify the cause of deaths in its report and asked to submit it on next hearing.

The court will take up the matter for next hearing on August 29.

The bench of justices Vikram Nath and Daya Shankar Tiwari passed the order on the Public Interest Litigation filed by activist Nutan Thakur after hearing her, Advocate General Raghavendra Pratap Singh and Medical Education Counsel Sanjay Bhasin.

The Advocate General opposed the petition, saying the state government has taken every possible measure in the matter and shall take all possible action as per the report submitted by the chief secretary.

Thakur contended that the action of the state government so far gave a message that it was trying to hide facts and shield the guilty. (With PTI Inputs)
