Thirty-three children, many of them new-borns, have died in the last 48 hours at the BRD hospital in Uttar Pradesh's Gorakhpur district due to alleged disruption of Oxygen supply.

In the last five days, a total of sixty children have lost their lives due to various reasons in the same hospital, according to some media reports.

Deputy Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Keshav Prasad Maurya has promised strict action against those who are responsible for the death of these children.

“Probe is going on in this matter and action will be taken against the culprits,” Keshav Prasad Maurya said.



It has been alleged that 33 children have died in last 48 hours because of lack of supply of Oxygen to the hospital. It is being said that the deaths took place as the agency responsible for the supply of oxygen stopped the supply through pipeline due to lack of payment of bills amounting to Rs 69 lakh.
