Kiran J., a resident of Manjunathanagar, Mahalakshmi Layout, made several allegations, which led to the filing of an FIR in Mahalakshmi Layout, Bengaluru. On October 28, Yadvi, Kiran J's 3-year-old daughter, was brought to Sanjeevini Hospital in Mahalakshmi Layout to receive treatment for a fever. The doctors prescribed medication. However, the parent brought the child to the same hospital the following day, October 29, after she failed to recover, and she was admitted. In order to hydrate and treat the child, the hospital staff (the nurse) gave electrolyte drips and injections through the drips. However, Kiran observed that the drip was actually expired because it said on the electrolyte label, "manufacturing date: 2021-09 and expiration date: 2023-08." Kiran asked the hospital staff about it, and the father became irritated as he received an indifferent response. To make matters worse, the sick daughter's condition began to deteriorate, requiring the little girl to be transferred elsewhere.
In light of these developments, the father requested the Mahalakshmi Layout police station to lodge a complaint against the hospital personnel and doctor, accusing them of being callous and negligent for the worsening of his ward's condition. In addition, he has claimed in his lawsuit that the staff at Sanjeevini Hospital attempted to buy him off by offering a bribe after he moved the child to another private hospital in Rajaji Nagar. Reporters contacted the Sanjeevini Hospital, but they did not respond to their inquiries about this occurrence.
Under sections 274, 275, and 337 of the Indian Penal Code, the police filed a formal complaint. Sections 274, 275, and 337 deal with drug adulteration, the sale of contaminated drugs, and injury caused by endangering the lives or personal safety of others, respectively. They have told an investigating police officer that they have begun an investigation and are reviewing the case details. The police added that they got a statement from the hospital and that it had reprimanded the pharmacist and the nurse after the incident. The institution is also providing full support for the inquiry.
