Dogs Sleep on Beds Meant For People in Bihar Hospital, Probe Ordered
Bihar's Muzaffarpur District Hospital, where stray dogs were found sleeping on beds meant for human patients.

Patna: Bihar's Health Minister Mangal Pandey on Wednesday ordered an inquiry after dogs were found sleeping on beds meant for human patients in Muzaffarpur District Hospital.

Ever since pictures emerged of stray dogs sleeping on beds in the surgical ward of the district hospital, the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) has targeted the Nitish Kumar-led government of sheer negligence in day-to-day governance.

Stung by the reports, Health Minister Mangal Pandey directed civil surgeon Lalita Singh to constitute a four-member team to look into the incident.

Talking to News18, the BJP leader said, “I am expecting a complete report within three to four days. We will not spare anyone found guilty of such negligence.”

Meanwhile, civil surgeon Lalita Singh tried to deflect the issue and blamed inadequate security guards for the incident and said, “Every gate in the hospital is not guarded and these dogs enter during the night. I have directed the warden to keep only one gate open from now onwards."

When asked about the dilapidated conditions of doors and windows in the hospital premises, Dr Lalita said that a letter had been sent to the building construction department to improve the infrastructure. “The work will begin soon,” said the surgeon.
