Fire at GMCH drug store: J&K Shri Ram Sena demands CBI inquiry
J&K Shri Ram Sena has demanded CBI probe into drug store fire incident at Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) in Jammu.
Addressing media persons here today, Shri Ram Sena's State president Rajiv Mahajan said that fire at GMCH on Monday night was a deliberate attempt to destroy the record and hide shortages in actual stock position.

Mahajan said that whenever the record of position of medicines stock is sought from the concerned authorities, store is set on fire to destroy the record. He said medicines worth crores are purchased every year but no medicine is given to patients.

"Patients are asked to purchase medicines from market. Only IV fluids like dextrose and normal saline and voveran injections are given to indoor patients. Rest all other medicines are sold in market," the J&K Shri Ram Sena chief said.

Mahajan said that he had sought information last month under RTI Act regarding availability of medicines in stock of GMC hospital from the Information Officer concerned, but no reply was made available till date and now the very fine excuse is in place that store is gutted and records destroyed. 

Alleging foul play in mysterious fire in medical store, Mahajan said that hands of corrupt officials cannot be ruled out.

Mahajan appealed to the J&K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and Health Minister Bali Bhagat to initiate CBI inquiry into the whole episode.
