India Against Corruption,
Subject: Fast at Jantar Mantar from 25th July to 8th August, 2012
On 31.07.2012, Dr Vivek Arya and Dr Kanika of Dr. R.M.L. Hospital and Drs Vipin Mittal Atul Gupta, attending to the medical needs of the demonstrators, have examined Shri Anna Hazare, Shri Arvind Kejriwal, Shri Gopal Rai and Shri Manish Sisodia. Today, Dr T.S. Sidhu, the Medical Superintendent, Dr Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, has through D.O. No.12- 4/2012-RMLH(MS) dated 01.08.2012 (copy enclosed), forwarded the medical check up reports of Dr Vivek Arya dated 31.07.2012 and 01.08.2012. This team of doctors has advised that Shri Arvind Kejriwal, Shri Gopal Rai and Shri Manish Sisodia need immediate medical intervention of a hospital and should, therefore, be shifted to one. Dr T.S. Sidhu has endorsed this view vide the D.O. at hand. Moreover, their continued fasting, resistance to accepting medical intervention and announcing from the dais that there would be dire consequences following their forcible removal by the government, is not as per the terms and conditions that were mutually agreed upon and may lead to adverse law and order situations.
2. Your attention is also drawn to para 13 of the Undertaking furnished by you on July 7, 2012 for organizing fast from July 25 to August 8, 2012, whereby you agreed to comply with all lawful directions given to you by any police officer on duty at any stage of this agitation. Being the organizer of this agitation it would also be your responsibility to ensure the well being of the persons sitting on fast.
3. You are, therefore, advised to follow the doctors' recommendation and take steps for immediate hospitalization of Sh. Arvind Kejriwal, Sh. Gopal Rai and Sh. Manish Sisodia, to prevent harm to their lives and well being failing which you would be squarely responsible for any untoward incident. Delhi Police is ready to render all help by way of ambulances etc. in this regard.
