January 4 marks the first instance, while January 19 marks the second. On the first instance, Motilal Gound, 32, was found unconscious in a farm in the Amet hamlet and was taken to the local hospital by his family.
In the hospital’s Outpatient Department, he was declared dead. When the physician showed up in the morning to perform the postmortem, he discovered that the deceased had lost one of his eyes. The body was kept on an open table at the mortuary at that time due to a deep freezer malfunction.
Ramesh Ahiwar, 25, was recently brought to the district hospital and placed on ventilator support on January 16. He passed away that evening. On January 15, Ramesh had left without telling anyone. He was discovered hurt the following day. The hospital management twice summoned the police since the situation was medico-legal. One eye was missing when the dead body was pulled from the freezer on January 19.
According to Dr. Abhishek Thakur, the district hospital’s resident medical officer, the dead body was kept in the mortuary’s freezer, which was operating regularly. A preliminary study suggested that the dead person’s eye may have been chewed on by rats. Examining is being done on the mortuary’s CCTV cameras.
After a thorough examination, further action will be taken. Dr. Mamta Timori, the hospital’s chief medical health officer (CMHO), has sent letters to four medical officers, including civil surgeon Dr. Jyoti Chauhan, and requested a response from them within 48 hours.
