Delhi: Delhi minorities are complaining about the death of two men from Tablighi Jamaat and accuse of not giving medical care and food. The men were said to be quarantined at Delhi’s Sultanpuri.
The Delhi Minorities Commission attributed their deaths to the “callous and uncooperative nature of officers and doctors” and asked the Delhi CM and lieutenant governor for a probe into the matter, reports @iyersaishwarya.https://t.co/GW0nNFyb4V

The minorities have written a letter to the Delhi Lieutenant Anil Baijal and CM Arvind Kejriwal.
“Both of the dead belonged to Tamil Nadu and both were diabetic and died due to denial of diabetic medicines and erratic food supply”.
The deaths also point out at the “callous and uncooperative nature of officers and doctors”, said some inmates. The food supply facility is erratic and there are people for about 25 days who are still not allowed to go.
“They have completed 25 days in quarantine, much past the required 14 days. Their vast majority has tested negative, but some of those who tested positive are also kept in the same facilities. Out of 21 positive cases of Jamaat people at Sultanpuri camp, only around 4-5 were reportedly taken to hospitals.”
