Following the death of DU professor Dr Sanjay Kumar on Thursday, a member of the Varsity's Executive Council (EC), highest decision making body, wrote a letter to the Vice Chancellor urging him to improve medical facilities provided to employees.

"Dr Kumar was admitted to Sundarlal Jain Hospital on Wednesday evening. At midnight, his attendant was told to arrange for platelets as his count decreased dangerously. By the time it was arranged, he was no more," said Rajesh Jha, assistant professor at Rajdhani College and an EC member.

Jha further said that the hospitals the university has on its panel, where its employees can avail medical services, are badly equipped and cannot handle critical cases.

"In many cases, the hospitals are turning away patients citing lack of beds. Dengue has acquired epidemic proportions and its increasing complexity requires super speciality treatment on an urgent basis," reads the letter.

"I request you to allow the university staff suffering from dengue to get admitted in any hospital and grant total reimbursement for the hospitalisation," the letter added.

Raising the issue of alleged loopholes at Sundarlal Jain Hospital, Jha said, "Last year too, the university administration was informed about the problems at the hospital even as it continues to be on the panel. The faculty members demand an immediate review of the panel as the University employees are presently deprived of better medical facilities."
