Dilip Lunwat, an Aurangabad resident, said that his daughter Snehal Lunawat, a medical student, was forced to take the anti-Covid vaccination at her college in Nashik on January 28 last year because she was a health professional.

Snehal was a doctor and senior lecturer at Dhamangaon’s SMBT dentistry college and hospital, PTI reported.

She had taken Covishield, a SII-developed vaccine.

Days later, she complained of terrible headaches and vomiting and was brought to the hospital, where doctors discovered bleeding in her brain, according to the petition. According to the allegation, Snehal died on March 1 as a result of vaccination adverse effects.

The petition was based on a report presented on October 2 by the Centre’s adverse events after immunisation (AEFI) committee.

The petitioner has also requested a response from Gates, whose organisation, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, has collaborated with the SII to speed up the process of producing and distributing 100 million doses of the vaccine. He also requested a response from the Union government, the state of Maharashtra, and the Drug Controller General of India.

On August 26, a division bench of Justices S V Gangapurwala and Madhav Jamdar issued a notice to all respondents in the plea. The case has been scheduled for a hearing on November 17.
