A senior IPS officer in Bhopal is making his father undergo ayurvedic treatment at home, a month after a top city hospital declared him dead and issued a death certificate as well.
KM Mishra, 84, the father of Rajendra Kumar Mishra, a 1987 batch IPS officer, presently posted as ADG, Selection, at the PHQ was admitted at the Bansal Hospital on January 13 with a pulmonary disorder and, as per hospital records, declared dead on the evening of January 14. Mishra took his father to his residence at the 74 Bungalows locality, which houses mostly ministers and top civil servants where he has been undergoing treatment by ayurved methodology.
The bizarre incident came to light when constables of the Special Armed Force (SAF) posted at Mishra’s residence as domestic helps spoke out to certain people about it.
Rajendra Mishra told the media that his father was responding to ayurvedic treatment and did not comment on what the hospital had to say about his father’s condition. When a media team visited his house, Mishra did not let them see the father.
“KM Mishra was admitted at the Bansal Hospital on January 13 and was being treated by Dr Ashwini Malhotra. He was declared dead on January 14 and the body was released along with a death certificate issued by the hospital,” said Lokesh Jha, spokesperson for Bansal Hospital.
