New Delhi, Sept 15: Another kid died of  dengue in Delhi. It was not only but it was hospital's apathy which reportedly led Aman Sharma to death.

Aman's death shattered everyone in the country as the tragic incident took place just a week after Avinash's demise. 7-year-old Avinash died after his parents failed to get him admitted to a single hospital in the hospital.

It has been reported that 6-year-old Aman died on Sunday, Sept 13. Government hospital Safdarjung reportedly refused to admit Aman and told his parents to take Aman to home.

However, Aman's heath condition deteriorated within 24 hours. Later other hospitals too refused to admit the kid.

Upset with the two incidents, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal made a surprise visit to government-run hospitals in the national capital.

He was quoted as saying, "It is heartbreaking. We have become blind in the race to make more and more profit. We shouldn't forget our humanity. Nothing would have been lost if the hospital had treated the child. Would it have affected their profit margin so much?"

Meanwhile, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Tuesday, Sept 15 ordered a magisterial inquiry into the alleged refusal by some private hospitals in the national capital to admit a seven-year-old boy suffering from dengue.
