LARKANA: Police were called in to maintain law and order when family members and relatives of a woman held protest against doctors’ alleged negligence leading to her death along with one of her twin babies during the maternity process at the Shaikh Zayed Women Hospital, within the Chandka Medical College Hospital (CMCH), here on Sunday morning.

During the protest, Zainul Abedin Chandio, accused lady doctors of delaying the delivery process of his wife, Rahat Khatoon, and insisted that it was their negligence that resulted in her death as well as one of his two newborns.

“I had brought my wife to the hospital at 4am and the lady doctors asked me to arrange two pints of blood; they then asked for another two pints. I timely arranged the same but they delayed the operation. As a result, my better half expired along with one of her two babies,” he said, and demanded action against the doctors.

As the situation grew tense, the hospital administration called in police to ensure security of the staff.

A team from the Sachal police station rushed to the hospital and pacified the protesters by assuring them that action would be taken against anyone found responsible for the tragic incident.
