Baramulla, Nov 28 (KNO): A woman died after giving birth at District Hospital Baramulla in north Kashmir, with her family alleging medical negligence. However, the Medical Superintendent has assured a thorough investigation, saying that those responsible will not be spared.

The family of the deceased woman, Dilshada Akhter (32), a resident of Khadniyar, told the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) that she passed away after delivering a baby. They claim that despite repeated requests, doctors at the district hospital ignored Dilshada’s condition after she gave birth at 10:30 am on Monday.

Alleging that she was not properly cared for, the family said that Dilshada fought for her life from 10:30 am until 1 o’clock midnight. They alleged that the hospital staff remained engrossed in their cell phones instead of attending to her.

“It was a murder,” alleged the deceased woman’s sister, who witnessed the entire distressing incident. She urged authorities to investigate the matter to prevent further loss of lives.

Expressing shock, she called on the authorities to address negligence issues and “prioritise the welfare of society”. Many people fear visiting government hospitals due to perceived safety concerns, she said.

The Medical Superintendent of GMC Baramulla, Dr Parvaiz Masoodi said that a thorough investigation would be conducted. “If anyone is found responsible for any wrongdoing, they will face strict legal consequences,” he assured—(KNO)
