Bangalore, May 25: A surprise visit by A Ramadas, Medical Education Minister, Karnataka to one of the premier hospitals in Bangalore left him more surprised.

To his dismay he found liquor bottles lying in toilets and also found that doctors there did not come on duty for two months. He also found condoms thrown behind windows and dirt in a drinking water sump at the hospital.

"Regarding maintenance, I've never experienced this sort of a thing anywhere," said Ramadas.

"I saw more than 63 doctors absent. I'm collecting datas of last three months and I'm cutting the salaries of the doctors," Ramadas said. He further added that he suspended the Kitchen in-charge and the nursing in-charge.

It was reported that some rooms and drawers were kept locked to prevent checks, drug stocks were empty and doctors made prescriptions without maintaining a record.

A judicial inquiry into the matter has been ordered, but according to the patients things will not change.
