After CM’s word, child who died during eye surgery cremated

Hisar, January 23

After assurance of action from Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar to the grieving family, the body of the seven-year-old child who died during an operation in a private hospital in the town on Friday was cremated on Saturday evening.

The family and other protesters staged a demonstration leading to road blockade near the civil hospital on Saturday. The family members along with about 100 persons started dharna at the roundabout near the civil hospital. They were demanding arrest of the doctor, alleging that the overdose of anaesthesia caused Parth's death. The child had been taken to an eye hospital of squint surgery on Friday.

Subhash Wadhwa, grandfather of the child, said that JJP MLA Jogi Ram Sihag reached the dharna site and got him to talk to the CM over the mobile phone. "The CM assured me of action against anybody found guilty of negligence. After that, we cremated the body," he said. — TNS
