Highly braggart claims that UP has all the improved health-infrastructure and medical facilities in the state of Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government fell face-first as a six-year-old kid breathed his last in Banda after being denied treatment as his family could not pay the bill.
Vinod the victim was admitted to the Banda Medical College but doctors kept asking them to pay up before they began treatment. Later, when the family could not procure the necessary funds, the boy was referred to the district hospital, where he died.
A wailing Pushpraj while holding his brother’s body said, “Since the time I admitted my brother, the hospital staff including the nurse and doctor kept demanding money before beginning the treatment. I did not have money at that time and so I could not submit the asked amount. Instead of starting the treatment, the doctor referred my brother to the district hospital, where he died.”
Demanding the action against those responsible for negligence Pushpraj and his family members went to the District Magistrate office while carrying the body.
DM Divya Prakash Giri swung into action taking cognizance and ordered a probe into the incident and said, “a probe has been ordered into the incident and those who found guilty will not be spared at any cost. I have asked Chief Medical Officer and Sub-Divisional Magistrate to head the committee for investigation and to a file report to me,”
