New Delhi [India], Oct 12 (ANI): The Delhi High Court on Friday set aside the Delhi government circular issued on October 1 that excluded non-Delhi residence patients from taking treatment at the Guru Teg Bahadur (GTB) Hospital.
An NGO had challenged the circular issued by the state government claiming that it denies treatment to non-Delhi patients.
Earlier, the court had issued a notice to the Delhi government and questioned on what grounds did it issue such an order which clearly deprives people of their right to life under articles 14,19, 21 of the Indian constitution.
Advocate Ashok Agarwal, who appeared on behalf of the petitioner, had also told the court that the impugned order is "shocking, barbaric, and against humanity and it is liable to be stayed by the court." (ANI)
