Supreme Court called for fire safety audit report from states with the cases of fire at covid-19 hospitals.
10th December, 2020
The Supreme Court has asked the state of Gujarat to file a report of the inquiry of fire incidents in covid-19 hospital.
The solicitor general on behalf of the centre said that many states have delayed in submitting their reports due to which their reports are also pending, so, the court gave them some more time.
The solicitor general added that a committee has been appointed in the fire case of Rajkot & same can be done in other places too. The court added to this, that the Rajkot committee would inquire in the Ahmedabad matter.
The court also directed the centre and state to provide their suggestions to implement the safety rules properly which were earlier directed on 3.12.20, as the current rules are not enough to ensure safety during covid-19.
Further, the court has also issued notice to several states to submit their reports or status regarding the situation.
