Patients Dying Due To No Oxygen Is Genocide, Says Allahabad HC

The Allahabad High Court, hearing a PIL on May 4, said death of COVID patients due to lack of oxygen supply is equal to "genocide". Citing such death reports that have gone viral on social media, the court stated these incidents reflect "harassment" by the district administrations and the police upon the "poor citizens". Meanwhile, the District Magistrates of Meerut and Lucknow are ordered to submit reports on oxygen-deprived patients.
