Bengaluru: Commissioner of Police Kamal Pant on Thursday, May 6 informed that they have unearthed a case of black marketing of hospital beds and arrested three persons.

The arrested are Venkata Subbarao, Manjunath, and Punith.

Taking to Twitter Kamal Pant wrote, “A patient Laxmidevamma who was diagnosed with COVID 19 was brought to a private hospital. Due to the non-availability of ICU beds in the hospital, 2 persons, Venkata Subbarao and Manjunath connected to the hospital and in connivance with Punith – working as Arogya Mitra in another hospital. They then demanded and extorted Rs 1,20,000 from Lakshmisha, the son of the victim for alloting a bed in a reputed hospital.

“Rs 50 thousand was paid via GPay and Rs 70 thousand was paid in cash by the victim’s son. The bed was allotted and Laxmidevamma died a few hours later,” Pant added.
