The All India Institute of Medical Sciences has initiated disciplinary action against five doctors of the hospital after they were found guilty of lapses in the treatment of a youth undergoing treatment for dengue, an official said on Thursday.

The 20-year-old victim, who died a month ago, was admitted to AIIMS after several refusals even after being confirmed to be suffering from dengue.
