Jaipur: Rajasthan Government has constituted a three-member committee to probe the episode of blood transfusion from HIV positive donors to six thalassemia children causing HIV infection in them.

Medical Education Secretary CM Meena said the government had been informed that five patients in Jodhpur and one in Tonk were given blood donated by HIV positive donors without mandatory blood testing and investigations.

This erratic blood transfusion led to transmission of dreaded HIV infection in these patients, Mr Meena said adding that a three-member committee headed by Rajasthan AIDS Control Society President RND Purohit would probe the entire episode and would submit its report within seven days.

Mr Meena said the state government would take all measures to save the lives of these patients.
