Moral fabric in tatters, Delhi High Court on Oxygen hoarding

New Delhi, May 6

The Delhi High Court on Thursday said the moral fabric of people had been “dismembered” to a great extent as instead of coming together to fight the pandemic, they were engaging in hoarding and black marketing of oxygen cylinders, medicines and concentrators.

“We are still not understanding the gravity of the situation and seeing instances of hoarding and black-marketing,” the HC said. The observation came in response to a suggestion by a senior lawyer that retired medical professionals as well as medical and nursing students could be tapped to provide assistance in the prevailing situation. — PTI
