The patients further stated that they were receiving neither proper food nor drinking water. "Its all kaccha-pakka (half-cooked)," yelled an elderly man.

This hospital is in the area of ​​Kotwa Bani, about 30 km from the city. The incident took place at 1 pm on Thursday afternoon.

In a statement, Prayagraj Chief Medical Officer claimed that the water supply problem was resolved within two hours.

"There was a problem with the fresh water supply because of an electrical fault. We called an electrician and sorted the problem in two hours. There is always water in the overhead tank but the patients prefer using freshwater for their bath. We solved their problem in a quick manner," he said.
