Wondering why citizens seek the intervention of the High Court even on small matters such as to ensure smooth running of a children’s hospital which is the regular job of government servants, a division bench of the High Court on Monday directed the state government to inform it of the facilities currently available at Niloufer Hospital in the city.

The bench, comprising acting chief justice NV Ramana and justice Vilas V Afzulpurkar, was hearing a public interest petition filed by one NH Sylvanus who brought to the notice of the court the sorry state of affairs in the hospital and said it was running without proper ventilators.

Justice Ramana said at one point of time that he would appoint two advocates of the court to study the conditions at the hospital. But the government counsel assured the bench that he would file a counter narrating the facilities currently available there.
