Bhawanipatna: A minor’s death has sparked tension in Kalahandi’s Narla as his parents alleged that the death was because of medical negligence.
Kaibalya Senapati took his minor son to Narla Community Health Centre (CHC) after he was unwell. He was reportedly given an injection and sent home. Sometime later, the kid got sick again. This time he passed away before he could be admitted into the hospital.
The parents and other family members along with the boy’s body blocked the Bhawanipatna-Narla road and demanded compensation. They blamed a shortage of doctors at the CHC for the resultant medical negligence.
Narla Police arrived on the rod blockade and was in talks with the bereaved family.
