HC seeks report on facilities at Leper hospital
D A RASHID
Srinagar, Feb 5: Jammu and Kashmir High Court Tuesday directed the government to file compliance report on the directions it has passed on a Public Interest litigation seeking measures for a healthy and vibrant medical care in Kashmir.
The court had earlier directed the government to file a comprehensive report about the prevailing conditions of the Leper hospital at Baghwanpora here.
After the court was informed that inmates in the Leper hospital were putting up in a miserable condition and even basic facilities are not provided them, a division bench of High Court comprising justices J P Singh and M H Attar held “before considering the projected grievances we want to have a factual report of the state government on the issue”.
The court directed Senior Additional Advocate General A M Magray representing the state in the case to furnish information about the number of lepers putting up in the hospital, the facilities provided to them and the manpower sanctioned by the government for the hospital.
In a separate direction the court asked the deputy commissioner Islamabad to file supplementary affidavit and status report whether unlicensed/ unregistered drug stores, private hospitals, nursing homes, or clinical establishments were closed in terms of the previous order of the court.
In the PIL titled G M Khan versus state, the High Court had earlier directed Secretary Health and Medical Education, deputy commissioners and Senior Superintendents of Police (SSPs) of all districts of the state to file status report with regard to unlicensed, unregistered drug stores, private hospitals, nursing homes and chemical establishments functioning in the state.
