Bargarh, Oct 11:
Tension gripped Bargarh district headquarters hospital (DHH) following the death of a woman after delivering a baby due to alleged negligence by doctors.
According to reports, one Subhrarekha Sahoo (24) of Birimal village under Bargarh police station had given birth to a baby boy at the hospital last evening.
However, she died this morning at the DHH. Her husband alleged that negligence on the part of doctors at the hospital led to Subhrarekha’s death. He further alleged that the doctors took bribe from him for delivery.
Following the incident, irate villagers of Birimal and locals staged road blockade by placing the body on the road. They demanded action against the erring doctors and compensation for the family members of the deceased.
The blockade was withdrawn after the Additional District Medical Officer (ADMO) assured them of probe into the incident and autopsy of Subhrarekha’s body in the presence of a magistrate.
