The doctor said on reaching the hospital he found Gombi was still on a ventilator and Gombi's family told that the doctors at the private hospital told them he will stop breathing once the ventilator support was removed.

"The family had been told that once the ventilator is removed, he will be officially dead. So, they had started preparing for the funeral also. His friends had posted the news of the death on social media and as I reached the hospital, at least 1,000 people had gathered there," said Galgali as per the HT report.

Galgali further said that when he started the autopsy, he saw goosebumps on Gombi's body when he touched it. "...[It] meant there were sensations in the body. I checked with a pulse oximeter and I checked his heartbeat. There was a pulse. Then I removed him from the ventilator and waited for a bit. To my surprise, he moved his hands. I immediately called the family and shifted him to another private hospital, " he added.

Earlier on Tuesday, Gombi has shown some improvement and his vitals are normal. "I am told there is a chance of his survival and he responding to treatment. I have done more than 400 post-mortems in my 18-year-old career but never seen a case like that," said the doctor.

No case has been registered in the matter so far as the police are yet to receive a complaint. "For the case of medical negligence, the district health department will have to take a call," said a police official.
