Baramullah: In a case of shocking apathy, power failure in a Baramulla hospital killed two infants on ventilator support on Friday evening. The family claims that the hospital officials refused to turn on the generator during a two-hour power supply cut.

Residents and family members of two infants who died at a government hospital are now demanding action against the medical staff. The families claim that the medical staff voluntarily refused to switch on the generator.

A probe has been ordered by the Director of Health Services.
