The Karnataka State Legal Service Authority (KSLSA) submitted a report to High Court bench in connection with Chamarajanagar District Hospital's oxygen short supply incident that led to 24 deaths in a few hours.

As per reports, the KSLSA committee headed by Retired Justice AN Venugopala Gowda and committee member Retd Judge KN Keshavnarayana recommended surplus oxygen supply to each district, refurbishment of Mysuru oxygen plant, giving security to oxygen supplying vehicles and ensuring compensation to victims through High Court appointed committee.

The HC has directed the state government to look into these recommendations and has adjourned the hearing for tomorrow.

Earlier, former MP R Dhruvanarayan had expressed doubt on the state government appointed probes, one by IAS officer Shivayogi Kalsad and another by sitting Judge AB Patil.

He had said that the government should honour High Court appointed committee report rather than stressing on agencies and commissions’ reports set by the state government.

On May 2, Chamarajanagar District Hospital witnessed mayhem as 24 lives were snuffed out due to short supply of oxygen. The issue grabbed national headlines and BS Yediyurappa's administration was once again criticised.
