However, Delhi’s top Ram Manohar Lohia’s Hospital Director Dr Ajay Shukla who is currently holding the post of Director and Medical Superintendent of the hospital, as per the website of the hospital as of now. Also, two doctors of the same department hold the position of Department Heads.

Meanwhile, a source in the hospital said that Dr Rahul Khare has also been appointed as the head of the Department of Orthopaedics.
