"We tried to silently protest in front of Max Hospital in Shalimar Bagh, but police removed us from there. The Delhi government had taken the decision that would have served as a warning to other hospitals.

"But, now the cancellation order has stayed. We are running for justice. We want justice and so we demand a CBI probe into the whole case so that things get clear," Kailash told reporters.

He said they have hired an advocate to pursue the case and claimed that on Thursday a plea was filed by him in Rohini court for a status report of the ongoing investigation in the case.

The Court of Financial Commissioner stayed the cancellation order issued by the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) till 9 January, when the next hearing will be held.

Rishi Pal Singh, counsel for the aggrieved family, said: "if the appellate authority summons us, we will present our case or else we may move the high court".
