As many as 30 children lost their lives due to encephalitis in last 48 hours at Gorakhpur's BRD Hospital, reported ANI today. He said he had announced a magisterial probe into the deaths.But, as per hospital sources unwilling to be named, there was a sudden drop in the oxygen supply pressure around 8pm on Thursday, and the situation worsened by 11.30pm same day. "Quick action will be taken against the ones responsible for this, as it is a very serious issue", Siddharth Nath said after meeting Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath here.

Ace cricket veteran, Virender Sehwag, expressed grief over recent children's deaths due to encephalitis in Gorakhpur.

Similarly, Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, who led a delegation to the hospital earlier, asserted that the Uttar Pradesh Government should apologize to the whole nation in regard to the same. The Health minister said the State government was not informed by the doctors and officials about shortage of oxygen either July 9 or August 9.

Demanding a high-level inquiry into the incident, Mayawati said all possible help should be extended to the bereaved families.

Prashant Trivedi, the state's top health official, acknowledged that there was a problem in the pipeline supplying oxygen.

The company had sent repeated reminders about the oxygen supply to the government hospital authorities and the medical college - considered one among the state's biggest.

Yogi Adityanath government has reportedly asked for a report on this incident within 24 hours. "Yes, 60 patients have died at the hospital in the last five days but we don't think it's linked to reports of oxygen shortage", said Anil Kumar, Gorakhpur's divisional commissioner.
