The petitioner is Dilip Lunawat. He claims that his daughter Snehal, a doctor in Nashik, Maharashtra and a senior lecturer at the SMBT Dental College and Hospital, experienced severe side effects from the COVID-19 vaccine that she never recovered from. She died on March 1, 2021.
Lunawat noted that his daughter died around a month after first getting vaccinated with the Bill Gates-funded AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, distributed in India under the brand name Covidshield with the help of the Serum Institute of India (SII), a private biotechnology company.

The state government of Maharashtra, Dr. V.G. Somani, the Drugs Controller General of India, the Union Health Ministry – the health ministry of India's federal government – and Dr. Randeep Guleria, director of the All India Institute of Medical Science, New Delhi (AIIMS Delhi) were also cited as respondents to Lunawat's petition.
Lunawat is asking the High Court of Bombay to force the respondents to compensate him for 1,000 crore rupees ($123.87 million) for the death of his daughter.
According to Lunawat, health workers all over India like his daughter took the COVID-19 vaccines after being lulled into a false sense of security due to "false narratives and misrepresentation" created by the petition respondents. Lunawat also blamed the implementation of mass vaccination programs by state authorities "without any proper verification," which led many doctors like his daughter to their deaths.
Lunawat cited an interview Somani gave in Jan. 2021 wherein he claimed that the COVID-19 vaccines are "110 percent safe" as an instance of health officials spreading false information about the vaccines.
"Similar interviews were given by respondent Dr. Randeep Guleria, director of AIIMS, Delhi and others," stated Dilip's petition. "They asked everyone to take vaccines by stating that the vaccines are completely safe."
The petition pointed out that the Union Government's Adverse Event Following Immunization committee admitted on Oct. 2, 2021 that Sneha Lunawat's death was due to the side effects of the Covidshield vaccine.
In addition to monetary compensation, Dilip is asking the court to take action against social media companies that are involved in the "conspiracy of suppressing correct data about deaths caused due to vaccine side effects."
Lunawat is also asking the court for a declaration that the authorities listed as respondents have "callous criminal attitudes, as they have continued with their narrative that they have treatment for side effects of anti-COVID vaccines."
Justices Sanjay V. Gangapurwala and Madhav J. Jamdar have asked the respondents to provide the court with responses during the next hearing, scheduled for Nov. 17.
