New Delhi, May 26 (TIWN) The Delhi High Court on Tuesday sought response from the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) and the Delhi government on a plea seeking compensation for the next of kin of a Covid-19 patient, who allegedly died without getting proper medical attention.

A bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Jasmeet Singh also asked Delhi government's Rao Tula Ram Hospital to respond to the plea which claimed that the victim's condition was critical and his oxygen level was very low, still the doctor of the hospital did not recommend for admission and due to the medical practitioner's negligence, the man died while waiting for an ambulance.  The family sought appropriate compensation for the loss of life of the deceased due to complete mismanagement and criminal negligence of the authorities.
