The police are closely investigating the entire incident and have questioned 1,800 employees of the staff and out of these 12 persons with name of Vikas were separately questioned which the woman had earlier suggested as suspect. The probe team has also scanned entire CCTV footage of the hospital but nothing supports the allegations of the woman,” he said.

She is also getting better treatment in the hospital and a designated team of the doctors is observing her health condition,” Bhardwaj said.

She further said that the woman is still undergoing treatment at the hospital. Two women constables have been deployed for her security.

“The woman is a tuberculosis patient and it will take next 6 to 7 months for her recovery. We have asked the hospital management to take nominal charges for her treatment which they have accepted,” Bhardwaj added.
