ANSWERED: Govind, the 14-month-old infant who was operated
upon after Star reported on his sorry plight.
The bulletin highlighted the predicament of Dhamlu, a man from
Sahranpur, UP, and his 14-month old infant son Govind. Dhamlu arrived
in Delhi about two months ago to admit Govind, who required major
brain surgery. However, Govind could not get his son admitted to
any hospital, as beds were not available.
The Govind story on Star News was taken note of by the Delhi health
minister Dr AK Walia, who immediately wrote a letter to the hospital.
This resulted in Govind getting admitted to the GB Pant hospital
where he was operated upon successfully.
