The three X-ray machines of the trauma center of the GBP Hospital in Agartala have stopped working leading to immense problems for patients.

A long queue of patients could be seen waiting outside the X-ray centers on Thursday.

No one in the hospital was ready to answer the queries of the waiting patients as to when the X-ray machines would be restored.

A source in the GBP Hospital said the trauma center has three X-ray machines, two of which have been lying in a non-functional state for a long time.

However, there is no promptness from the hospital authorities for repairing the machines.

The third one also went cripple from this morning.

One of the X-ray machines was reportedly fixed several hours later.

GBP Hospital superintendent Debashis Roy said he had no knowledge about the X-ray machines not working.

“Staff in the trauma center have not informed me about any technical problems occurring in the X-ray machines,” said Roy.
