Four medical staff at an Indian hospital have been suspended after an accident victim was made to use his severed leg as a pillow.

According to the reports, the man, who was a cleaner in a school bus, lost his one leg and around half of the students got injured when a bus turned turtle in Lechura area on Saturday. Earlier previous year, over 30 children had died in Gorakhpur's BRD Medical College and Hospital after oxygen supply was disrupted over non-payment of dues. He was immediately rushed to Jhansi Medical College.

Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma said the state government will take action once the full information about the incident is available.

In Rajasthan, a nursing staff of a government hospital allegedly declared a newborn baby dead.

"We have set up a four-member committee to find out who put the severed leg under the patient's head", Sadhna Kaushik, principal of the Maharani Laxmibai Medical College and Hospital in Jhansi, had said.
