When he went to another hospital, the doctors there also continued his treatment with cardboard cast plaster.

On June 7, a younger man named Mukesh Kumar in Bihar's Muzzafarpur met with a bike accident while riding his bike, he was immediately admitted to the Primary Health Center (PHC) in Muzzafarpur's Minapur area. The doctors of PHC started to treat his injured leg with a cardboard cast plaster instead of the plaster cast.

However, the medical staff of SKMCH showed unprofessional behavior and his family alleged that no doctor was visited over the five days he was admitted to hospital.
