Hameed said, “Santosh’s oxygen level had come down to 84 per cent. After this I started making calls on 108 and 1912. One of the few calls was answered, connecting us to a hospital. We got an ambulance after calling 108 and a BBMP officer. However, we also had to wait for 45 minutes for the ambulance. ”

It is said that all the six hospitals returned Santosh and Hameed, saying that they were short of oxygen, while there were no beds. Whenever the hospital refused, Hameed would call 108.
