Police were deployed at the hospital prior to his visit, vehicles were barred from parking close to the gates for security reasons.  Meanwhile, families of patients, who are seen resting in the corridors of the hospitals were asked to clear them.


"I arrived today itself. Our patient has been admitted. We were told to sit outside," said Manoj, a resident of Antop Hill.
