Angry relatives ransack Kolkata hospital after baby's death

The death of a baby at a hospital here on Monday, led members of his family to ransack the hospital over charges of alleged medical negligence.

Kolkata, May 2 : The death of a baby at a hospital here on Monday, led members of his family to ransack the hospital over charges of alleged medical negligence.

Ghulam Mohammad was admitted to the Calcutta Medical Research Institute (CMRI) in the Iqbalpur area in mid-March, and was being fed through a pipe. He died on Monday night.

Relatives claimed that the hospital was ransacked after the medical authorities refuse to part with the body, saying a hefty medical bill had to be settled first.

Police had to baton charge the relatives to bring the situation on at the hospital under control.

At least five persons were detained for damaging hospital property.

"One child died here. Then, there was a dispute over the discharge between hospital authorities and the child's relatives, who then went on a rampage. We are investigating the matter now. We have detained four-five people," Ajay Kumar, Deputy Commissioner of Police said.

Naseema, the mother of the dead child, alleged that there was something fishy about the death of her child.

"The child was fine at night. In the morning, a hospital peon came to our house and informed that the child had died.

We rushed to the hospital. A doctor here asked us to take the body away, and said we did not have to pay the bills. The doctor who had earlier operated upon the child, completely evaded us.

The hospital authorities later said they would not let us collect the body till the bills were paid. Moreover, the child's father was detained by the police," said Naseema.

The dead body was later handed over to the relatives.
