The crisis of oxygen cylinders in city hospitals has led the administration to “trespass” shops and areas to ”procure” the same.

Rau Police Station in charge Narendra Singh Raghuwanshi and a team of Nagar Parishad (Rau) officials along with the garbage collection van reached a shop in Rau area where wielding work was carried out till the lockdown was imposed.

The officials borrowed the shopkeepers’ cylinders and made him sign a contract. The team took eight cylinders from their owner.

TI Raghuvanshi said people or organisations are voluntarily cooperating and are providing cylinders.

The contract says that till the Covid-19 crisis remains, these cylinders will remain with the administration which will be refilled and provided to patients.

The cylinders are marked with a unique identification number.
