The hospital doctors, who were on strike at the time, had reportedly refused to see the injured people.
The committee headed by Dr Bholaram Shrestha found both the hospital administration and doctors guilty in the case and recommended action against them.
The Article 35(1) of the constitution stipulates that no citizen shall be deprived of emergency medical facilities.
The ministry concluded that such a move was in violation of country’s law and the hospital administration and doctors deserved action, according to Health Minister’s legal advisor Raju Katuwal.
The ministry has instructed the Nepal Medical Council (NMC), the body that regulates the country’s medical sector, to proceed with action against the hospital director and doctors within the next 15 days as per the Nepal Medical Council Act-2020 and Rule 2024 and update the ministry.
The hospital has also been instructed to initiate action against the agitating doctors and staff on duty that day within 15 days, the ministry said.
