30 children were reported dead in a span of 48 hours

Uttar Pradesh largest government hospital BRD medical college, Gorakhpur district stopped the supply oxygen cylinder which killed at least 30 children.

The alleged disruption of oxygen supply led to the deaths of 30 children at a hospital in Gorakhpur on Friday.

Chief Minister Adityanath had warned officials of strict action if any irregularity was detected in the treatment of the patients.

The company had threatened to stop supply the oxygen cylinders if the bills were not paid immediately.

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi said he is deeply pained. "The state government is responsible for the deaths", said Raj Babbar, a leading opposition figure.

Sonia Gandhi blamed "gross negligence and incorrigible misconduct on the part of the authorities" for the tragic accident.

BRD, which is in the state of Uttar Pradesh, had run up debts of $6.9m Indian rupees ($107,000), a sales representative at the company responsible for suppying the oxygen said. Rautela, who has been camping in the medical college since Friday night, said he found out from doctors that no deaths occurred due to lack of oxygen. He also said that more oxygen cylinders will be brought from the neighbouring district. However, he didn't confirm the reason. Another father, Deep Chandra from Basti district, voiced concerned of oxygen being unavailable from past 48 hours.

"I did so completely on humanitarian grounds", he said, and denied reports that he had disrupted the oxygen supply over non-payment of dues.

Yogi Adityanath government has reportedly asked for a report on this incident within 24 hours. Meanwhile, according to data procured from the BRD hospital, in past five days - from August 7 to August 11, a total of 60 deaths have occurred in the hospital.

"The parents of children who died must get compensation".

Almost 60 children have died in the past five days in Gorakhpur's Baba Raghav Das Medical College hospital, forcing Uttar Pradesh government to launch a magisterial enquiry into the incident.

A high-level magisterial probe has been ordered into the incident.

Neonatal and encephalitis wards are reported most deaths.

The deceased, including newborns, were admitted at Baba Raghav Das Hospital in Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's hometown of Gorakhpur. Some 40,000 children have died of the disease in the past four decades in the region.
