While taking suo moto cognizance of the Delhi gangrape case, the Delhi High Court has ordered the city government and police to give wide publicity to its directives that no hospital, whether private or government, can decline treatment to victims of rapes and accidents.

 


 

 

A court bench has asked the government and police to publicize its orders sufficiently within 7 days. Earlier, pursuant to the earlier court orders, the commissioner of police had directed all police officials to take victims to a nearby hospital regardless of whether it was  a government-run or private hospital.

 

 

It was up to the city and central governments to evolve mechanisms and guidelines for reimbursing the costs incurred on treating the victims, said the bench.
