The charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder was slapped against Medicity, Azeezia and Meditrina in Kollam district, and SUT and Government Medical College in Thiruvananthapuram. They dismissed him as they had no neurosurgeon or ventilator or simply wouldn't admit him. Apart from the police probe, the state human rights commission is also looking into the incident.
