  1. Very sad for the family. Hospitals have become so commercial minded that they seem to have forgotten about their duties towards society. Doctors have simply become brokers by taking cuts (dignified name for bribes) for referrals and other unnecessary treatment.

    Nothing shall ever happen to these hospitals since they are managed by people in high places. No action shall ever take place. By the the time courts decide none of us shall be here to see that day.

    Only if people unite and take to the streets by having a Belgaum bandh that some change shall take place else like all things it shall be forgotten.
