Officials have stepped into the arena against the ambulance mafia with TV9’s stories. A warning was given to the RMO and Superintendents of Gudur Government Hospital who acted negligently. The response to TV9’s articles on the private ambulance mafia was that what they said was final, they have to give as much as they ask, and if they don’t give what they ask, that’s all. They are ready to take action against the ambulance mafia that is preying on the sick and the poor like vultures. The police have registered cases against the ambulance drivers who demanded thousands of rupees to transport the dead body and abused the victims in Gudur in Tirupati district. Responding to TV9’s stories, the District Collector ordered a thorough investigation. The Guduru RDO, which entered the field on the orders of the collector, conducted an investigation near the government hospital. Ambulance mafia confirmed that the claims were true and filed a complaint. On the complaint of Guduru RDO, cases were registered against the ambulance owners under various sections.
Apart from that, the RDO gave a report on the RMO and Superintendent of the Gudur government hospital along with the ambulance managers.
