Indian authorities have suspended two doctors and launched an investigation after a patient's severed leg was used as a pillow to prop up his head, a hospital official said Sunday.

"It is hard to understand how a reasonable person could do such an unfair act", the National Human Rights Commission said on Monday. Medical negligence has become a common day phenomenon, but incidents like these should be thoroughly investigated and the guilty must be severely punished. Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma said the state government will take action once the full information about the incident is available.

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

'I repeatedly asked the doctors to intervene but they refused.

Chief Medical Superintendent, Harish Chandra Arya, said: "It is not yet clear who chose to use the amputated leg to rest Ghanshyam's head". A school bus had overturned after an accident in Jhansi when the cleaner of the bus lost his leg in the accident and was rushed to the medical college.

European Council president Donald Tusk has threatened to freeze Brexit talks, insisting that the sequence of negotiations must be "Ireland first".

It is unclear from video footage of the incident if he was aware of what he was lying on while his severed leg was propped up.

While it is understandable that giving the patient immediate treatment was the need of the hour, using his own amputated leg as a headrest is an inexcusable horror.

"Even if any medico-legal aspect was there in this case, it should have been immediately kept in the laboratory".

Medical Education Minister Ashutosh Tandon has ordered the suspension of emergency medical officer Dr Mahendra Pal Singh, senior resident Dr Alok Agarwal and nurses Deepa Narang and Shashi Srivastava.
