Not that the warnings did not come timely. Following this report, the correspondent was harrassed by the contractor, a big fish under Ghisingh-regime and the DGHC health secretary then Suman Pradhan. The contractor even threatened to kill the hospital superintendent for talking to the correspondent; this happened astonishingly in public.
The news that a citizens' group is taking legal action against the contractor after fresh damages is heartening.
