September 4, 2017: The Uttar Pradesh government on Monday transferred the district magistrate and two top medical officers of Farrukhabad following the death of 49 children at the district hospital in the past one month.

The action came a day after the city magistrate Jainendra Kumar Jain lodged an FIR with the local Kotwali police station, stating that the lack of oxygen supply was suspected behind the deaths of a majority of the children at the government-run Dr Ram Mahohar Lohia Hospital.
The district administration and the state health department took conflicting views on the cause of deaths, with the state health department terming the district administration’s report as superficial.
In a joint press conference, principal secretary, health and family welfare, Prashant Trivedi, and principal secretary, information, Avinish Awasthi maintained that the death of 49 children in Farrukhabad hospital did not occur due to oxygen crisis.
“Action will be taken against officers and doctors on the basis of the report of the technical team,” Trivedi said.
