    KEM hospital Mumbai has played dirty game with us. My daughter Dr. Shruti Khobragade resident doctor of the KEM died on 26.10.2014 due to the mischievous act of the hospital. . Hospital authorities has changed the case papers by holding the papers and conducting the meetting amongst the so called treating doctors during the period from 12.11.14 to 24.11.14. The facts came to my notice when I asked the information under RTI Act. I felt that the hospital authorities suppressed the real facts.
    It is requested to look into the matter.
