Maharashtra has seen dozens of hospital deaths in recent weeks, triggering calls for an investigation.  The state government has now announced the formation of a committee to probe the loss of 31 lives at a Nanded hospital. The development came amid reports that 10 more patients had died within a span of 24 hours in Sambhajinagar’s Ghati Hospital on Tuesday.

“Yesterday, a terrible incident of death took place in the government hospital of Nanded. Today it comes to light that the same horrible incident happened in Ghati Hospital in Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar. Preliminary information is that 8 people died including 2 children. It is understood that 7 more deaths have occurred in the Nanded hospital as well. It's all terrible," tweeted Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Aaditya Thackeray in Marathi. 

He also lashed out at the state government and the BJP, wondering whether the government hospitals had ‘become a death trap’.

“It's a serious incident and the situation is also concerning. Around 31 patients have lost their lives so far and out of those 15-16 were children so there are many reasons. This is a government medical college so the government needs to take a decision soon...," Congress Leader Ashok Chavan said of the Nanded situation. 

This is the third incident to take place within weeks in Maharashtra. Earlier in August, 18 people admitted to a state-run hospital in the Thane region died over a 24-hour period. The government had ordered an investigation into the incident at the time.
