Jammu: Principal Government Medical College, Jammu, Dr Nasib Chand Digra has rebutted a news report telecasted on a private news channel that GMC administration deliberately delayed the postmortem of deceased person and handing over of the body to the family.
The Principal GMC clarified that a patient was admitted in GMC, who died on Sunday. He informed that the patient resident of Doda was a jail inmate and thus it warranted to go by the prescribed procedure.
He said the process was delayed because of attendants who didn’t want the body to go through postmortem procedure. But as per protocol, the body had to go through the postmortem procedure.
The hospital administration constituted a team for the postmortem after getting permission from District Administration Doda, he added. He said the procedure was delayed and the attendants of the patient demanded to take away the body without postmortem.
Thus, the hospital administration has refuted the news as devoid of actual facts.
