It mentioned that the patient was in need of urgent medical attention, and alleged that the delay at the check post led to the unfortunate demise of the patient. “Proof of identity of the concerned, medical reference and vehicle documents should be adequate reasons to allow the patient party to proceed peacefully,” it stated.

Although complaints and suggestions have been given to the authority concerned regarding the need to introduce an efficient and systematic checking at the check post, all efforts were in vain, it mentioned.
