The 67-year-old retired district judge residing at Gomati Nagar in the city expressed his anguish in the letter saying, “I made several calls for help on the government helpline since 7am on 14th April; however neither did any one come to provide medicines at home nor was any procedure initiated to admit her to the hospital. My wife Madhu Chandra died due administrative apathy. At present, there is no one to even pick up her dead body. Please help.”
