The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has notified the government of Rajasthan about the death of two babies due to overheating of warmers at a government-run hospital in Ajmer district.
The committee notified the Chief Secretary of Rajasthan and requested a detailed report within six weeks.
It has instructed the government to include in the report the status of the investigation in the case, the measures taken against those responsible and any assistance to the injured families.
The NHRC said it had taken note of a media report about the death of two babies at the Amrit Kaur hospital run by the state government in Ajmer, Rajasthan.
According to the quoted media report, the deaths were caused by temperature fluctuations and overheating of the heating during the night.
It has also been reported that 20 babies had been admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) when the incident took place and other babies narrowly escaped death.
Before the incident, the babies’ mothers had visited the NICU to breastfeed, the statement said.
