Woman Patient Carried On Trolley: OHRC Seeks Report From Puri CDMO
Bhubaneswar: The Odisha Human Rights Commission (OHRC) has sought a report from the Chief District Medical Officer (CDMO) of Puri to carry out an investigation into the death of a woman who was carried on trolley by her husband from Puri to Cuttack.
The commission has directed the CDMO to submit the report by November 12.
Kabir Bhoi, a resident of Puri, had earlier admitted his wife Sukanti at the local District Headquarters Hospital (DHH). The doctors at the DHH had advised him to shift his wife to SCB Medical in Cuttack as her health condition continued to deteriorate.
Kabir then paddled his sick wife for around 90 kms from Puri to Cuttack on a rented trolley rickshaw on October 11 after he failed to hire an auto-rickshaw to take her for treatment at SCB Hospital due to lack of money.
