DUMKA: At least a dozen people may have gone blind after cataract surgery held between October 5 and 7 at Jharkhand Sewa Sadan hospital in Barharwa block of the Sahibganj district.

Jharkhand health minister Banna Gupta directed Sahibganj civil surgeon Dr Arvind Kumar to conduct a probe into the matter.

Kumar has formed a six-member committee and directed it to submit a probe so that action could be taken against those found guilty. The management of the private hospital has taken three people to Kolkata for treatment of visual loss. The exact number of the victims is yet to be ascertained.

The victims had gone for bandage removal on Friday when they realised they had lost their vision. At this, their relatives resorted to vandalism at the hospital.
