Confusion prevails over FIR on Fortis hospital
GURUGRAM: There is confusion over the recent FIR filed by the Haryana government against the Fortis hospital in Gurugram while the Haryana government claims that the formal complaint filed is against the management. T

On Sunday an FIR was filed at the Sushant Lok police station under section 304-part -2 of the Indian Penal Code. Few days before the FIR, the health minister had asserted that the hospital had direct role in the death of its Adhya.
