Chandigarh: A very shocking incident came from Haryana. You will be shocked to know that a Kargil martyr’s wife died at a private hospital in Haryana’s Sonipat after she was allegedly denied treatment due to lack of Aadhaar card .
According to her son Pavan Kumar, the woman was rushed to the hospital in a critical condition and her admission was withheld even after Pavan showed her Aadhaar card on his phone.
He added, “I said that I will get Aadhaar in an hour or so, meanwhile begin with the treatment but the hospital refused to do so.”Pavan claims that the hospital’s uncompromising stance on admission is what led to his mother’s untimely demise.
However, the hospital authorities denied all accusations levelled by the woman’s kin saying that Aadhaar is needed only for documentation not for treatment.
A doctor at the hospital said, “We never denied them treatment. Please note that he never got the patient to the hospital. We have never stopped any treatment due to Aadhaar card ever. It is mandatory, not for treatment, but for documentation process.”
Reacting strongly to this, VN Thapar, father of Kargil martyr Vijayant Thapar said, “Shocked at the disgusting news. We’ve become so indifferent to human life! These are the kind of things that hit morale of armed forces.”
