In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, a family from Baramulla on Monday staged a protest at Govt Medical College, Baramulla, claiming there was medical negligence by the medicos at the hospital.

According to the family, the 6-month-old baby was taken to the hospital yesterday morning for treatment. However, the family was told that the baby is completely alright, they said, adding that they were asked to leave.

“Later in the evening, the child was showing some signs of medical issues, and we took him to the hospital again. We were asked to conduct complete blood count (CBC) and other tests. It came to fore that the baby had an infection and was given medicine and we were asked to leave for home,” the father of the child said.

“After the health condition of the child deteriorated, we took him again to the hospital this morning. The baby was administered Sefraxzone 1 gm injection. However, after 2 minutes, the child died,” he said. The family staged a protest against what they termed as negligence by the authorities there and demanded strict action against the involved medicos.—KMS
