In a shocking incident reported, Jharkhand lynching victim Alimuddin Ansari’s 22-year-old son Shahzad Ansari passed away in a private hospital after experiencing severe pain in his head for several days. The unfortunate death of Shahzad happened on Wednesday, January 23 at a private Lake View hospital in Jharkhand’s Manau village.
Shahzad Ansari was looking after the family after his father was brutally lynched to death on June 29, 2017 over suspicion of carrying beef.
Giving in the details over Ansari’s heath condition, his mother Mariam Khatoon told eNewsroom, “Yesterday, he complained of headache. We did not take him to a government but private hospital, Lake View, in hope of availing better treatment for him. He wasn’t into any form of addiction. After the CT Scan, doctors told us that there was no issue and that he would be fine.”
Mariam, however, suspects foul play in the part of hospital. His brother Shahbaj is also unable to understand how his brother died. Family of deceased said that Ansari often complained of headaches but it was never so serious to claim his life.
Reportedly, Ansari was given many injections, saying that it would help him to sleep.
Mourning over her son’s sudden demise, Mariam said, “First my husband and now my son. What is left for me to see? The hospital killed my son. He was given so many injections, saying that it would help him to sleep. But my son never woke up again.”
Shahzad Ansari’s father a lynching victim
Shahzad Ansari’s father, Alimuddin Ansari, was lynched to death two years ago by a mob on suspicion of carrying beef. Almost a year later, in March 2018, the court convicted 11 of the 12 accused of lynching him under Section 20B (conspiracy), indicating that the attack was pre-planned. The court also sentenced them to life imprisonment. The Jharkhand High Court, however, suspended the life sentence awarded to eight of the 10 accused.
