A senior official said the complainant had lost his brother in 1997 owing to alleged medical negligence by the MGM Hospital. Following this, the complainant approached the national consumer court in New Delhi that ruled in his favour and awarded him the compensation.

“As per the court directive, the complainant approached the Employment State Insurance Scheme (ESIS) officials and a compensation amount of Rs 15 lakh was agreed upon. He had to get a compensation cheque from the MGM Hospital,” the officer said. He added, “When he approached the MGM Hospital for the same, he was told by the accused person that they will give him the compensation cheque only if he was willing to grease their palms as well.”

The complainant, who had fought his brother’s case right upto the national consumer court, did not want to make the payment and accordingly approached the ACB. The ACB verified the complaint on Saturday and instructed the complainant to play along with the accused.
