After getting admitted to the mental hospital, the patients were forgotten by their loved ones, neither came to take back nor took the news
You are your own... This does not apply to the families of psychopaths. On deteriorating mental balance, the 'his' who brought him to the mental hospital in Agra to admit him for treatment. He neither came to see them again nor did they return to take them back. 142 such patients are waiting in mental hospitals for more than 2 years to return home.
A patient can be kept in a mental health institution for a maximum of 90 days. Here 142 patients are admitted for more than 2 years. There are five patients who have completed five years.
