The girl died after taking the ‘covid shield’ vaccine against corona virus. On the basis of such allegations, the father demanded 1000 crore rupees as compensation. The Mumbai High Court has issued notices to the Serum Institute of India (SII) and Microsoft founder Bill Gates seeking a reply in this case.
Indian media Indian Express and Anandabazar reported this information in a report on Saturday.
A doctor by profession, Dilip Lunawat, a resident of Aurangabad, India, filed the case in court seeking compensation from SII and Bill Gates. Dilip claims that his daughter’s death was due to the side effects of Covishield vaccine. The petition filed by Dileep also names the Union Health Ministry, DCGI VG Somani and AIIMS director.
Dilip told the court that his daughter’s name is Slehal, 33 years old Slehal was a doctor and taught at SMBT Dental College and Hospital in Dhamangaon. He also said that all the health workers of that institute are asked to get vaccinated. For this his daughter was also forced to take vaccination. Dileep also claimed that the people were assured by the government that the vaccines were safe. But after that her daughter died. So he is forced to file this case.
The case came up before a division bench of Justice SV Gangapurwala and Justice Madhav Jamder of the Mumbai High Court on Friday. Lawyers Abhishek Mishra and Vijay Kurle are fighting the case for Dilip Lunawat.
According to lawyers, Slehal received his first dose of CoviShield on January 28 last year. Since then this doctor was physically ill. On February 6, Snehal suffered a severe seizure while attending a workshop in Gurgaon. Blood clotted in his head. His platelets also began to drop. Despite being admitted to a hospital in Gurgaon for 14 days, Snehal’s condition was not improving. He was then taken to a hospital in Aurangabad. Snehal died there on March 1 after eight days.
The lawyers also pointed out in court that many people around the world have died of similar symptoms after taking doses of AstraZeneca and CoviShield, yet the authorities did not take appropriate action. And so the central government, the Drug Controller General of India is also blamed for the girl’s death. The next hearing date of the case is November 17.
