"We have set up a four-member committee to find out who put the severed leg under the patient's head", Sadhna Kaushik, principal of the Maharani Laxmibai Medical College and Hospital in Jhansi, told Agence France-Presse.

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Monday issued notices to the Uttar Pradesh Government and the Centre over the Jhansi medical negligence episode, wherein severed leg of a youth was used as a pillow at Maharani Laxmi Bai Medical College. "Strict action will be taken if our staff is found to be at fault", she said, adding, "It appears to be a case of mischief".

The man, who was identified as 28-year-old bus conductor Ghanshyam, was seriously injured in an accident which occurred when he picked up students from a public school and reached a village, when a herd of stray cattle suddenly came in front of his vehicle.
