According to the report, Shah slammed the "gross negligence" of the authorities in civil hospital and Gujarat Cancer and Research Institute, which the Gujarat High Court recently termed as "dungeon".

Just few days back, another resident of Ahmedabad had received a call from a hospital informing of his father-in-law's Covid-negative result and transfer to a non-Covid ward, days after he had cremated him.
