Twins die moments after Vaccine

GHAZIABAD: Police have sealed Shastri Nagar’s well-known Divya Hospital after nine-month-old twins died there after getting measles vaccination.

Police have also registered a case of culpable homicide against the owner of the hospital, Dr Satvir, who is an Ayurvedic physician. Senior superintendent of Ghaziabad police, Raghubir Lal, said, “We have recovered some documents where Dr Satvir has claimed he is an MBBS degree holder.”

Chief medical officer, Dr R K Dhaon, said, “We have constituted a medical committee to examine the causes of the twins’ death. We can not make any comments until the committee comes to a conclusion. We have sent the viscera of both the babies for forensic examination and a central government team is also examining the case.”

“Dr Satvir vaccinated Chandni even after Charu had already adversely reacted to the vaccination. Besides, he took the twins to another hospital after vaccinating them, and disappeared from there with the vaccination cards,” Lal added.

According to Sunil Sharma, father of the twins and a resident of Swarna Jayanti Puram, the twins were their only children. “Around 6.30pm on Wednesday, we took our twins to Divya Hospital. Dr Satvir vaccinated Charu around 7.30pm, after which she started vomiting. He pushed me out of the cubicle, saying she was fine and gave the shot to Chandni also. When both of them fell sick, Dr Satvir took us to a hospital in Kavi Nagar and disappeared from there. The twins fell unconscious, we got scared and took them to Ganesh Hospital instead. By then it was too late, and the doctors declared them dead,” Sunil explained.

Dr Satvir has been absconding.
