Despite charging Rupees Three Thousands for MRI from the poor parents (BPL Holders), Delhi Government run Lok Nayak Hospital failed do the MRI of one year old child suffering from neck tumor. Firstly, they were told that MRI machine was non-functional and to come on 01.10.2012 and when they came on 01.10.2012, at about 2.30 pm they were told that MRI was not possible due to Doctors’ strike and they were told to come on 17 October 2012. When the parents asked to return Rs.3000/-, they were told that it was not so easy. Disgusted with state of Lok Nayak Hospital, the mother and the child approached Advocate Ashok Agarwal for help.

On reaching, the patient was examined by the Doctors at Bensup Hospital and was advised to come again on Wednesday 03.10.2012 for further treatment.
