The hospital administration in Bundi was deliberately trying to hide the statistics of the deaths of children even as the issue of infants deaths in JK Lone Hospital in Kota rages on. The official figures of the deaths of children in Bundi district were revealed after the Additional District Collector visited the hospital on Friday. The hospital administration, which was until now carefully hiding the number of children deaths had to disclose that in the past month, 10 children lost their lives in the SNCU ward.

The medical department of the hospital said that all the children who died in the hospital came from rural areas. Duty in-charge Hitesh Soni tried to defend the hospital by claiming that some of the children who died were undernourished while others had contracted infection, vindicating hospital administration of medical negligence.
