The Allahabad High Court today dismissed the bail plea of the proprietor of a firm which supplied oxygen to the government-run Baba Raghav Das Medical College in Gorakhpur where dozens of children died last year. More than 60 children, mostly infants, had died at the hospital within a week in August, 2017. There were allegations that the deaths occurred due to a disruption in oxygen supply over unpaid bills to the vendor. Justice Yashwant Varma today dismissed the bail petition of the proprietor of Pushpa Sales, Manish Bhandari, saying, “the court is inclined to accept the submission that custodial interrogation of the accused may still be warranted and it would not be appropriate to grant him bail at this stage”.

The counsel for state government opposed the petition saying the investigation in the case is still pending and Bhandari may be required for it.
