Woman dies alone with twins after doctors ‘delayed’ treatment at maternity hospital, probe ordered

Srinagar, April 25: Authorities have ordered a probe into the death of a woman and her twin babies after doctors allegedly delayed her treatment at a maternity hospital in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district over apprehensions that she might be a coronavirus patient.

The woman who hailed from Kharpora village, which has been declared a coronavirus “red zone” by the administration, was admitted to Child and Maternity Hospital Anantnag on Saturday morning. Family members alleged that since she hailed from a red zone area, doctors were hesitant to treat her, which eventually led to her and the twins’ death.

Principal Government Medical College, Showkat Geelani, said that he has ordered an inquiry into the matter. “A committee has been constituted and asked to submit its report within three days,” he told.
