A CTM resident Bhanuben has been untraceable after she was admitted to the Civil Hospital on April 6. She had complained of difficulty in breathing.

Interestingly the hospital doesn’t know where she is admitted or if she is COVID positive. Her two sons are now desperately looking for her even as the administration and cops have given up on helping the family.

Manoj and his brother Dharmesh said their mother was brought in an ambulance to the 1200-bed Civil Hospital after she complained of difficulty in breathing.

She was admitted and when the next day the son came to deliver his mother’s mobile charger the hospital said they would deliver it to her. When he returned in the evening he realised the charger had not been delivered and the hospital had no clue where his mother was. He had no way of contacting her on her mobile as it was not charged.

The sons are now desperate to know where their mother is admitted.

The hospital staff have not been helpful and have been unable to trace the mother. The desperate son even called up the police control room and the Shahibaug Police directed the hospital staff to help him but nothing came of it.

He said no one is willing to help him and he is not even sure if his mother is COVID positive.
