AIIMS worker demands ₹5 lakh from a patient for a bed, arrested

An employee used to work as a lab assistant in the hematology lab at AIIMS, and his sister, who worked as a nurse, have been restricted for purportedly demanding ₹5 lakh from a patient who was suffering from Covid-19 for the arrangement of a bed in Safdarjung Hospital, New Delhi.

The blamed workers have been identified as Pankaj Kumar and his sister Ramkavalpreet Kaur aka Mamta. They both are currently out of their jobs, said DCP Pranav Tayal.

“We received a complaint on the Covid helpline from one Haripal Kumar, who alleged that two persons took Rs 2.8 lakh from him on the pretext of getting his wife admitted to Safdarjung Hospital. Police found that Haripal had come across contact details of Pankaj. He later sent his sister’s phone number and informed the couple that she would help them,” said the DCP.
