Bolangir: Tension ran high at the district headquarters hospital (DHH) in Bolangir following the death of a girl child allegedly due to medical negligence.

As per reports, the girl hailing from Lanjigaon in Nuapada district was admitted to the hospital on Sunday following some ailments.

Even though her condition was critical, the doctors on duty didn’t go on a round to attend the girl which resulted in her death, alleged her family members.

Soon after the incident, the family of the deceased along with various other organisations staged a road blockade in front of the hospital demanding compensation.

“She was not attended by any of the doctors. The doctors are only responsible for her death. We demand compensation for this,” alleged a relative of the girl.
