On a Sunday afternoon, the Cama hospital looked deserted with a few relatives of the patients loitering about in the premises. Dr Saroj Maheshgauri, medical superintendent of Cama and Albless Hospital, said that 25 collapsible gates had been installed in the various wings of the hospital. "The hospital administration has also become very strict with the issuing of passes to the relatives of the patients. No visitor is allowed to stay in a patient's room after the 7 pm. In addition to that, we have closed all other openings on the hospital premises leading to the exit. We have also written to the state government asking for trained military personnel," said Maheshgauri. However, there wasn't a single armed policeman in the premises. One of the guards said that in each of the three shifts four people looked after the security of the institution. All they were allowed to wield was a stick.
