Max hospital deaths: police file status report

Court directs Investigating Officer to probe the matter expeditiously

The Delhi Police on Monday filed a status report on its probe into the death of twin babies at Shalimar Bagh Max hospital before a court here, which has directed that the investigation be conducted expeditiously.

“Status report filed. Taken on record. Investigating Officer (IO) states that they are awaiting report from Delhi Medical Council (DMC) and they have already recorded statements of concerned persons. He further states he has given request letter and reminder to DMC to file their report at the earliest,” Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Rajesh Malik said.

Police claimed to have found that in the death register of the hospital, only the time of birth of the two infants was mentioned but not the time of their death, despite both being handed over in two separate packages.

“Both the birth and death time entries were made in the specific registers which have already been provided as part of the investigation,” Max Healthcare claimed on the other hand. “There has been no lapse in this process,” it said.
