The panel has called for a full-scale investigation and pointed out mismanagement at the hands of two senior doctors.

Suppliers' bills had allegedly not been paid, leading to a shortage that saw panicked families using artificial manual breathing bags to help their loved ones.

The principals of all the medical colleges in the state have also been told to personally ensure that there is no shortage of any medicine or oxygen, and no laxity in this regard will be tolerated, she said.

For 5 days children died in the hospital a Woman Raghav Das in the district of Gorakhpur.

Reports had earlier suggested that the hospital had low supply of oxygen because it failed to pay its outstanding dues of Rs 70 lakhs to the vendors.

"Doctors are being made scapegoats", said Dr. Harjit Singh Bhatti, who heads an association of resident doctors at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences or AIIMS. "There are multiple instances of overwriting in the stock book of oxygen cylinder at the BRD hospital", the report added.

"In fact, the number of deaths have reduced compared to past year", said Dr. Harish Chellani, from the paediatric department of Safdarjung Hospital, who was part of the team.

A district official said there was a "payment issue" with the supplier, but said the deaths could have been caused by "natural" causes as many patients were admitted in a serious condition. "Stringent action will be taken against the guilty, whether in Gorakhpur or elsewhere".

"Reported deaths, in such a large number in a government run hospital, amount to serious violation of Right to Life and Health of the innocent victims", the commission said in a statement. Every year from diseases there are hundreds of children die.

As many as 72 children died at the Gorakhpur hospital after oxygen supply was cut off last week, a development that BJP president Amit Shah described as a "tragedy, a mistake that happened at some level".

"We have formed a high-powered committee under the State Chief Secretary to probe the reason of the deaths of children in the BRD Medical College and the supply of oxygen".
