THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Taking a serious note of the complaints on under-qualified technicians at private diagnostic centres, State Human Rights Commission chairman Justice Antony Dominic directed District Collector K Vasuki to ensure whether the labs were operating as per the provisions of Kerala Clinical Establishments (Registration and Regulation) Act 2018. The commission had acted on a complaint filed by social worker A Sathyan.
