Martyrs’ uniforms in garbage dump: CRPF blames Raipur hospital staff

An internal inquiry conducted by CRPF has found lapses on the part of hospital authorities and staff in Raipur by not following set procedures as a result of which uniforms and other belongings of martyred troops were found in a garbage dump recently in Chhattisgarh.

The inquiry findings, submitted to CRPF headquaters here, said two pairs of uniforms and few sets of jungle boots of CRPF personnel, killed in an encounter with Maoists, were thrown away in garbage dump after being considered as “medical waste” by the panel of doctors and lower rung employees at the hospital’s autopsy centre.

Fourteen CRPF personnel, including two officers, were killed in a Naxal attack in the Chintagufa region of South Bastar’s Sukma district on December 1.
