    GHC asks State Govt to Reply on ‘Harassment’ Meted Out to Non-Covid Patients within 2 weeks

    Petitioner's side argued that notice was already issued in the instant matter but no affidavit was filed by the state government

    GUWAHATI: The Gauhati High Court on Friday granted a further two weeks’ time to the state government to clarify the ground reality regarding the insistence of a non-Covid certificate for taking admission in various hospitals in the state.

    In PIL no 48/2020 filed by Congress leader Debabrata Saikia, various instances were brought into the notice of the court regarding the refusal of hospitals across the state to entertain the urgent admissions of many critically ill people due to the non-production of a non-Covid medical certificate.

    Counsel for the petitioner advocate Syed Burhanur Rahman argued that notice was already issued in the instant matter but no affidavit was filed by the state government and resultantly due to the insistence of such a non-Covid certificate many vulnerable patients like pregnant women, cardiac patients etc are still suffering. 

    A division bench headed by Justice Sudhanshu Dhulia granted a further two weeks’ time to the state government to file the affidavit.
