Srinagar: The untimely and unfortunate death of a lady and her baby at SDH, Seer Hamdan Anantnag has sent shock waves among the people of the area. It is entirely the result of willful negligence of a doctor at the said hospital.
CPI (M) leader Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami demanded that an FIR must be lodged against the culprits without any delay.
The family of the deceased lady has alleged that doctors delayed her treatment and later asked to shift her to Maternity and Child Care Hospital. Such negligence on part of doctors needs to be thoroughly investigated and the culprits must be given exemplary punishment under law.
There should be no eye-wash or cover-up as due to willful negligence of the doctors a mother and a yet to be born baby have lost their lives.
The incident has happened at a time when doctors and health workers have put their own lives at a risk while fighting against COVID-19 pandemic. We salute the valor of doctors and health workers who are at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19, but at the same time demand strict action against those involved in the death of the pregnant lady.
