Can any one tell me how to get a discharge summary of a person from a private hospital? Is there any legal procedure for this? This is needed to support a Dv case running.

1. Discharge summary of a patient are confidential records.
2. Only via S. 91 CrPC one may; that also after getting it allowed from a competent Court which may summon such confidential records.

Sec 91 of Cr.PC states as follows
(1) Whenever any Court or any officer in charge of a police station considers that the production of any document or other thing is necessary or desirable for the purposes of any investigation, inquiry, trial or other proceeding under this Code by or before such Court or officer, such Court may issue a summons, or such officer a written order to the person in whose possession or power such document or thing is believed to be, requiring him to attend and produce it, or to produce it, at the time and place stated in the summons or order.
