Gorakhpur: A father of a child, who died in Gorakhpur's Baba Raghav Das (BRD) Medical College tragedy, has filed a police complaint against the Uttar Pradesh Health Minister, the Medical Education Minister and the Principal Secretary Health in Gorakhpur.

Rajbhar, the father of the deceased child, had admitted his child for treatment on August 10. He is from Gopalganj in Bihar.

Rajbhar, in a letter, has claimed that his child died due to disruption of oxygen supply and has blamed Health Minister Siddharth Nath Singh, Medical Education Minister Ashutoh Tandon and Principal Secretary Health Prashant Trivedi for the same.

He also alleged that no post-mortem was done after his child's death.

The complaint was filed on August 14, but no FIR has been registered as yet.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, meanwhile, has outrightly blamed college principal Rajiv Mishra for laxity in performing his duty.

He also said that a team of top ministers was asked to determine if the children actually died due to a disruption in oxygen supply to the hospital and assured to "not spare anyone found guilty".
