- She also said there were blood stains on lathis & on the table.
Woman constable agreed to sign the statement after JM assured her proper security.

When the JM asked the cops to produce lathis, they pretended as if they did not hear what he said. They tried to subvert. One cop escaped the station and ran away by jumping the wall.

At a time when Chennai is recording a high surge in number of Covid-19 cases, instead of being sensitive, private hospitals are fleecing patients.

We got several complaints from patients about this and that's why we decided to do a status check. Here's what we found:
We visited 3 prominent pvt hospitals in Chennai to understand how patients are exploited.

Hospital 1:
Advance amount- Rs 50,000
PPE kits per day- Rs 10,000
Deluxe room including other charges- Rs 70K- 80K per day
Ventilator- Up to Rs 1.25 lakh per day
Hospital 2:

This hospital gives Covid19 treatment packages. There is a Rs 3 lakh package and other packages depending on the room. And if the patient needs ICU, advance of Rs 1 lakh need to be paid immediately. They were out of ICU beds when we visited.
