Further, a complaint has also been registered at Bhoiwada Police Station. Any anatomic waste has to be incinerated i.e. destroyed completely and shouldn't be disposed. Head of Biomedical Waste Management, Maharashtra Pollution Control Board stated that hospital staff should be more careful in handling such waste as it may spread infections. 

Notably, earlier this week, a 2-month old infant Prince Pannelal Rajbhar from Varanasi was admitted in KEM Hospital as he faced severe heart ailments. The ECG machine that was attached to him caught fire and the infant suffered 22 per cent burns. His right arm had to be amputated and further succumbed to his injuries. An investigation on this case is also underway in Bhoiwada Police Station
