The attack

I had some regards for Mr SK Roy, the Peerless group head, having known his contribution in building a big corporation out of a modest entity. But watching him speak to the press after yesterday's mob attack to Peerless Hospital after it allegedly refused treatment to accident victims unless security deposit was made wasn't a pleasure. He kept on accusing the mob attack of an act of vested interest and defending his hospital. Never was there a mention whether treatment was offered to the hapless, some of who died because of the denial. It's a big question whether private hospitals, no matter however big a name, with possibly an exception of RTIICS, have changed much even after the Supreme Court ruling and state govt. circular that nobody can be denied emergency treatment.
