GMSH inquiry faces roadblock
Registration card of Bulbul goes missing

Chandigarh, July 24
The “inquiry” being conducted by the Government Multi-Speciality Hospital (GMSH), Sector 16, authorities into the death of a newborn at the OPD counter faces roadblock with the registration card of the victim found to be missing. The document was crucial to nail the erring staff, including doctors who had handled the expectant woman, Bulbul.

Dr Rajiv Vadhera, medical superintendent, and Dr Raman Nijhawan, inquiry officer, confirmed that the card had gone missing and despite their repeated efforts it could not be traced.

“The last time the card was seen in the woman’s hand was seconds before she delivered the baby in front of the OPD counter. Already under trauma due to the loss, the victim and her husband are unable to recall to whom they had actually handed over the card,” said the inquiry officer. No one has come forward to submit the card with authorities, she added.

GMSH sources said in the absence of the card it would not be possible to fix the responsibility for the lapse. The card could have helped in revealing whether any doctor examined Bulbul or not.

Bulbul, who was writhing in pain, was forced to move from one room to another while leaning on her husband, Chhotu, shoulder, for 24 minutes before the baby was delivered. None of the staff members, including doctors, nurses, counter clerks, laboratory technicians or security personnel bothered to call for a stretcher or a wheelchair for the woman. Both of them were new to the hospital.

The CCTV footage revealed that Bulbul and her husband went towards the doctors’ room twice after getting the registration card made at the OPD counter following which her blood sample was taken at the laboratory. The name of doctor who examined her could be confirmed only after the OPD card is traced.

Meanwhile, the inquiry officer recorded statements of Jasjit Kaur, an employee of GMSH, besides that of Poonam and Sonia, the two eyewitnesses. Dr Vadhera, however, was seen instructing staff at both emergency wards to install signages at different places.

Ram Niwas pulls up authorities

Finding the authorities on wrong foot after media highlighted the harassment faced by the couple on the basis of the CCTV footage shown yesterday, Home Secretary Ram Niwas visited the hospital today. He pulled up the authorities for the incident and asked them to make arrangements so that such incidents don’t occur in future. 

Gynae Rush
Top hospitals bursting at seams

Chandigarh, July 24
Even as there was a ruckus over the death of a newborn following delivery in the open at the Government Multi-Specialty Hospital (GMSH), Sector 16, on Wednesday, government hospitals in the city were finding it hard to handle increased flow of patients, particularly at gynaecology departments.

The city, with the best medical facilities in the region, had been receiving patients from far-off places in Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana and Jammu and Kashmir.

At the Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH), Sector 32, a total of 47,791 patients were treated at OPDs of the gynaecology department and 7,281 patients at the emergency ward till December 31 last.

Occupancy during the year was recorded at 40,426, against a capacity of 28,560. With more than 10 deliveries every day, the total number of such cases at the hospital was as high as 4,043 last year.

Things at the PGI were no different, where at least 400 patients were examined at the gynaecology OPD every day. While around 30 patients were treated at its clean labour rooms, the number of deliveries was between 12 and 16 on any day at the hospital, where only complicated cases were received for delivery.

At the GMSH, the staff was found to be the most burdened, with around 25 deliveries carried out on any day. The number of deliveries last year stood at 7,735, with an OPD footfall of more than 250 every day.

Though the administration had schemes to promote institutional delivery to bring the mortality rate of live births down, there was not adequate infrastructure to handle the increase in number of visitors at hospitals, said a doctor, on the condition of anonymity.

Four persons, two mothers and their children, lying on each bed at wards was a common sight, with all of them exposed to infection, she said.

There was a need to change things for the better, said Dr Anju Hurriya, head of the gynaecology department at the GMCH. A special hospital for mother and children was the need of the hour, she said.

Dr Raj Bahadur, director-principal, favoured the setting up of a special ward for the gynaecology department at the F-block. Seven floors were planned for the F-block and the purpose of five floors was yet to be ascertained, he said.

A proposal would be made by the management to the administration to provide funds so that maximum space could be provided to the gynaecology department in this block, he said. The strengthening of health facilities in the peripheral region of the city should be the prime target so that pressure on city hospitals was reduced, opined Dr MP Singh, deputy medical superintendent of the GMSH.



Babla, farmer bodies gun for Rodrigues
Former Administrator parries volleys
In the wake of the recent exposé involving ADC Maj Nirvikar Singh’s amassed wealth, Congress councillor Davinder Singh Babla and farmer organisations — Chandigarh Sanjha Morcha and All-India Defence Brotherhood — of the city, at separate press conferences today, raised question mark over the integrity of former UT Administrator Gen SF Rodrigues during his tenure and demanded a separate court of inquiry by the Army as well as the CBI in the matter involving him as well, besides his ADC. General Rodrigues talked with The Tribune reporter Smriti Sharma Vasudeva to answer the queries:


Davinder Babla
Davinder Babla

1. I was implicated in the shed allotment case at the behest of the former Administrator who had instructed UT officers to register cases against me

2. A company, Unitech, was overnight given a major stake in the Amusement-cum-Theme Park as Rodrigues’ son, who dabbles in real estate in Goa, had some connection with this firm.

3. A CBI inquiry into the property grab case, wherein the share of Ashok Chawla, a partner in a Goa resort registered under Zuarie Tiger Aqua Ltd, was grabbed by Rodrigues and his son using their clout. Rodrigues is one of the directors in the resort.

4. Rodrigues has invested his money through Delhi-based financier-cum-realtor Raj Kumar Gupta.

1. Around 50 persons who were intimidated by Babla wanted to meet me. I had asked them to come as a representative group and finally 12 persons, who came to meet me at Raj Bhawan, told me intimidating stories of Babla, who was then the chairman of the market committee. Babla had been threatening them with dire consequences. This is how the truth came out and subsequent cases were registered against him.

2. The amusement park file was cleared and signed by Lalit Sharma, who was then the Adviser. It is on official record.

3. There was no grabbing of share in the Goa resort. The matter was sub judice and recently the court has ruled in favour of my son. I have nothing to do with it.

4. I have no friends in Delhi. My last connection with Delhi was way back in 1992. I only have friends in Goa where I am settled after retiring from service.

5. As far as I know, he was only allotted a penthouse by the AWHO (Army Welfare Housing Organisation) for which he had even taken a loan officially. Who goes around asking his subordinates about their property details?

Kharar, July 24
Agitated by over 12-hr-long power cut, residents of the Mundi Kharar area blocked traffic on the Kharar-Chandigarh road here late this evening. Raising slogans against the Powercom and demanding immediate restoration of power supply, hundreds of people took to the streets. Some protesters set old clothes on fire.

The area residents had been without power since 9 am following upgrade of the 132 kV substation to 220 kV.

As per the schedule, power supply was supposed to be resumed by 5 pm. However, with power not being restored even till 10.30 pm, people from Desu Majra, too, joined the protest.

The upgrade work had been going on for the past few days, leading to frequent power cuts in the area. Some persons in the mob also indulged in eve-teasing. Some women who were passing by were allegedly misbehaved with.

One of the girls returning for her office in Mohali on a two-wheeler was prevented from moving ahead, as hooligans allegedly misbehaved with her.

Meanwhile, DSP Raj Balwinder Singh Mrar said a case was being registered against a contractor, Ranjit Singh, who had instigated the mob.

“Ranjit Singh is being booked under the National Highway Act for disrupting traffic. Why bother common man when others are at fault,” he said. Naib Tehsildar Ajit Laungea visited the spot for pacfying the agitators. Mob turned violent and Laungea was escorted away safely. 


‘Chance recoveries’ find little luck in court

Chandigarh, July 24
“Police constable naka duty pe the, Laxmi Narayan Mandir, Sector 20, ke pas. Ek shaks Sector 20-21 ki lights ki taraf aa raha tha. Jab sub-inspector Harinder Singh ne Jagdish ki talaashi li, tab uski pant ki dahini jeb se polythene nikla, jisme se 50 gm charas baramad hui.”

The police has been using the same-old plot while filing recovery of contraband in the first information reports (FIRs).

Such cases are addressed by police officials as “chance recoveries”.

The plot runs on these lines almost all the time. In most cases, the police seizes contraband after setting up a checkpoint. The police usually apprehends the accused following a tip-off. In most cases, either the accused initially tries to flee or the police arrests him and seizes contraband from a bag or pocket. Interestingly, the contraband recovered from the accused is not of large quantity.

In the list of orders pronounced in the past one year, most cases have been of “chance recoveries”. The police usually follows this procedure to recover contraband.

Of the 30 orders pronounced in the past one year, accused in 16 cases have been acquitted.

In the orders of acquittal, the court usually questions the prosecution evidence stating: “After analysis of the evidence, the court is of considered opinion that link evidence is missing. The prosecution evidence is not reliable. The entire prosecution smacks doubt and the accused is acquitted of charge.”

Even if the accused is convicted, the sentence is either for one year, three months or seven days, as the quantity of contraband seized is not very high.

Usually, the quantity of contraband seized from most of the accused is either 25 gm of smack or a few kilograms of poppy husk.

The procedures laid down under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985 provide for other means for the police to make a search.

As per the procedures suggested under Section 50 of the NDPS Act, “When a duly authorised officer is about to search any person under provisions of the Act, he shall, if the such person so requires, take the person being searched without unnecessary delay to the nearest gazetted officer or the nearest magistrate.”

According to legal luminaries, if such a procedure is followed the chance of acquittal will be far less.

Chandigarh, July 24
The spat between officials of the Chandigarh administration and elected representatives of the municipal corporation (MC) is out in the open again.

This time, Mayor Anu Chatrath has taken strong objection to UT officials not inviting her to the inspection of the Valley of Animals, Sector 52, carried out by Home Secretary Ram Niwas. The Mayor and the area councillor, Ram Sumar Morya, were not informed about the visit.

Elected representatives believed that since the Valley of Animals was being developed by the tourism department in collaboration with the MC, they should have been informed about the visit. The Mayor also expressed her displeasure to the Home Secretary on this count.

The Mayor said in the future, the UT administration should inform elected representatives and the Mayor about their visit to any ward of the MC.

Expressing his resentment over the visit of the Home Secretary, Morya said it had become a practice with the bureaucracy to sideline elected councillors from participating in projects being set up in their areas.

Clueless about the inspection by Ram Niwas, he said residents of the area called him this afternoon to inform him about it. Despite repeated attempts, the Home Secretary could not be contacted for comment.

Admn taking MC for a ride

Chandigarh, July 24
The Chandigarh administration has been adopting the carrot and stick approach over the transfer of V3 roads to the municipal corporation for maintenance.

In fact, the administration doesn’t have the power to transfer V3 roads to the corporation without the approval of the ministry of home affairs.

During a recent meeting of officials of the administration and the corporation under the chairmanship of UT Administrator Shivraj Patil, the issue of transfer of V3 roads had cropped up.

It was decided that the administration would work out a possibility on transfer of these roads and prepare a report on it.

Referring to the Government of India’s gazette notification, administration officials said national and state highways were not maintained by the local self government.

They said said around 370 km of roads fell under the V3 category and these were being maintained by the UT engineering department.

Sources in the administration said to date, the administration had not prepared any proposal to transfer V3 roads to the corporation.

A senior official of the administration said the administration could not transfer V3 roads to the corporation until the union government de-notified its notification on roads.

He added that the administration would have to send a proposal to the ministry of home affairs for its approval if these roads were to be transferred.

He said it would not be easy for the administration to get the proposal approved from the ministry, as many such proposals had been lying pending with it for the past over two years.

Increase in width of Kaushalya Dam
Shivalik Vikas Manch seeks CBI probe
Tribune News Service

Panchkula, July 24
The Shivalik Vikas Manch (SVM) today demanded a CBI inquiry into the increase in the width of the Kaushalya Dam, which has caused losses of around Rs 62 crore to the state exchequer.

Addressing mediapersons here today, former chairman of the SVM and BSP leader Vijay Bansal alleged that Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, without seeking the advice of the technical committee, had ordered for the widening of the dam to benefit a real estate builder.

He said the money could have been utilised by the government on constructing Dewanwala, Dagrana and Chhamla dams on the Ghaggar.

He claimed that timely construction of these dams could have prevented recent floods in areas of Haryana and Punjab.

Bansal demanded the setting up of judicial courts and other administrative buildings at Raipur Rani and Kalka sub-divisions.

He also demanded the setting up of an environment court at Panchkula, as people had to appear before the court in Kurukshetra with regard to cases pertaining to pollution.

Alleging bias against Panchkula district, Bansal said even though the state government had set up 100 model villages throughout the state, it had failed to set up even a single model village in the district.

He said the government had announced the setting up of a polytechnic college in the town and also earmarked land in Sector 26 but the project had not seen the light of the day.



Flies haunt Barwala residents

Panchkula, July 24
North India’s largest poultry farm belt in the Barwala block of this district has taken its toll on the health of the residents. With unabated fly menace people are complaining of unhygienic conditions leading to various diseases.

Jaidev Singh, a resident of Kot Barwala, said at least one person in each house of his locality was suffering from diarrhoea or some other diseases due to consumption of food prepared in unhygienic conditions. He said despite utmost care by the womenfolk to cover the food items in their houses, flies manage to sit on eatables thus making them unhygienic.

He said though the poultry farm owners carry out regular sprays in the area, the doses were high on water and low on insecticides, which nullified the impact of the spray. District health officer Dr Jagmal said poultry farm owners had been directed to spray insecticide around their farms to restrict the breeding of flies.

He said recently he had visited the area and directed the senior medical officer of Raipur Rani to periodically spray insecticides in the fields near these poultry farms. They were continuously monitoring the situation.

Bhanu Pratap, studying in BCA final year in Chandigarh and residing at Barwala, said: “We have submitted several representations to the district administration for shifting of poultry farms from the area, but to no avail.”

He said he had recently been bed-ridden due to stomach infection and had to miss his classes for about one week.

A sweetmeat shop owner said: “We were so sick of flies, as we barely managed to get any business. The flies gorged on everything we cook. The sales have gone down. Now, we spray the medicine immediately after our items are ready and there is temporary relief.”

Chandigarh, July 24
The Panjab University authorities are all set to tighten the noose on protesters, who in a bid to get their demands fulfilled blocked the movement of traffic and pedestrians on the campus.

A circular cautioning student leaders about the same has been prepared by the Dean Student Welfare (DSW) office to be sent to all student organisations of the university.

University officials said an FIR would be lodged against individual protesters, who are found creating hindrance in the movement of the traffic or pedestrians or blocking the way outside the Vice-Chancellor’s office or any other important building. In addition to this, grievances of the student organisations will first be addressed to the authorities before they stage a protest.

With the elections for the student council expected to take place within the next two months, the authorities are now figuring ways to tackle the protests being staged by different student organisations, which has become a regular feature.

“Any kind of hindrance in the movement on the campus will be strictly prohibited. We have prepared a circular, which will be circulated to all presidents of the student organisations. The action, as per the law, will be taken against the violators,” said Naval Kishore, Dean Student Welfare.

According to the university officials, even those student organisations, which are generally inactive during the year, staged the protests on petty issues before the election time on the campus. In other cases, the protesters are often found raising slogans only for grabbing limelight.

Neha Miglani/TNS

Chandigarh, July 24
Panjab University in its bid to keep a check on ragging has introduced a system of induction programmes in all hostels from this academic session.

This programme has been introduced after receiving feedbacks from hostelers against the stringent anti-ragging rules, which, they claimed, didn’t gave them any opportunity to get familiar with others in the hostels.

This informal interaction programme will take place in addition to the formal freshers’ party in the hostels, said university officials. They added that during this induction programme between juniors and seniors, hostelers would get an opportunity to know each other. This programme is likely to start in all hostels from the next week.

“The hostel warden, staff and the students will meet over a cup of tea for an informal interaction. This programme will be organised in addition to the regular freshers’ party of the respective hostels,” said Dr Naval Kishore, Dean Student Welfare.

In addition to the induction programmes, hostel wardens had already put up anti-ragging banners near the gates and on notice boards to caution students against indulging any such act.
