KUPWARA â€” Family members of a 40-year-old pregnant woman, who allegedly died at sub-district hospital Kupwara during treatment, held a protest demonstration alleging that she died due to negligence on part of hospital authorities.
The family members of the woman alleged that no doctors were available at the hospital to treat the patient.
In a video, which is doing rounds on several social media platforms, family members could be heard saying that the patient was having severe pain, following which she was administered an injection, but that didnâ€™t bring any relief to her.
They alleged that she was also given painkillers and was shifted to the operation theatre; however, no doctor was available to treat her there, till she breathed her last.
The family members, joined by locals later staged a protest and demanded action against the hospital authorities.
They urged LG Manoj Sinha and deputy commissioner Kupwara to personally intervene in the matter.
The deceased woman has been identified as Rubeena Bano resident of Zangli village of Kupwara.
Meanwhile, Chief Medical Officer Kupwara, Dr Bashir Teli while refuting allegations of non-availability of doctors said that the lady was suffering from severe anemia and while she was being shifted to the hospital theatre, she had a cardiac arrest and died.
He added that a committee will be set to probe the incident thoroughly and if anybody is found guilty they will be dealt with as per the law. (KNS)
