GUWAHATI, Dec 22 - A division bench of the Gauhati High Court today issued notices to the Government of India, the Government of Assam and the State�s Health and Family Welfare Department, asking them to respond within three weeks to a complaint filed via a public interest litigation (PIL) by Leader of the Opposition in the Assam Legislative Assembly, Debabrata Saikia, to the effect that many patients have suffered harassment or even died as a result of insistence by various hospitals of Assam upon production of corona-related certificates even in cases requiring emergency treatment.

Saikia contended that many road accident victims had died, along with heart attack and stroke victims, in recent months due to the unfair policy adopted by various hospitals of the State, said a statement issued by the Leader of the Opposition.

The PIL further stated that many pregnant women have also suffered due to this insistence upon documentary proof of a patient being free of coronavirus.

The notices were issued by Justice N Kotiswar Singh and Justice Manish Choudhury after hearing the submission of Saikia�s counsel, Syed Burhanur Rahman, added the statement.
