Private Hospital ransacked after woman’s death
Srinagar, Oct 2: The agitated relatives and family members of a woman patient allegedly ransacked Shifa Hospital in Magarmal bagh area of Srinagar.
“The angry relatives of the patient ransacked and damaged the hospital from top to bottom,” Dr Gulzar, working at the hospital said.
The relatives lost temper after the death of the woman who reportedly hails from Dandarkah area of Batamaloo Srinagar.
Reports said that a 45 year old lady, mother of three daughters, Dilshada Banoo was admitted in the hospital last week after she developed complications due to chest infection.
“Doctors assured us that she is fine and stable. She died today after suffering from internal injuries when one Dr Bilal conducted a surgery. How can a doctor be so negligent while taking care of a stable patient,” one of the relatives of the deceased lady said.
Dr Gulzar from Shifa Hospital said that she had developed pancreatic complications which can prove fatal sometimes. He alleged that angry relatives of the deceased lady damaged hospital property worth lakhs.
“I was terrified. Many people sustained injuries during the melee,” said an eyewitness.
Dr Gulzar said that even police was unable to control the agitated locals. (KNT)
