SC seeks response from Gujarat govt over Rajkot hospital fire

New Delhi: Terming the Hospital fire incident in Rajkot, Gujarat “shocking”, the Supreme Court on Friday took suo motu cognisance of the incident and sought response from the state government.

As many as five coronavirus patients were charred to death and six others injured in the fire that broke out in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of a private hospital at 1230 hrs.

A three-judge Bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan, R Subhash Reddy and Shah said that recurrence of such fire accidents needs thorough introspection.

The Top Court will again hear the matter on December 1.
