A man carried body of his nine-year-old granddaughter on his shoulder after being denied treatment at the civil hospital and no ambulance was given to them by the hospital administration.
As per the police spokesperson, the grandfather of Lakshmi brought her to Badshah Khan hospital on Saturday morning. But doctors allegedly refused to treat her and later she died.
Lakshmi was suffering from fever for past two days.
Post her demise, the doctors asked the man to take the body home. However, no ambulance was provided by the hospital authorities, he said.
As he had no money to book a private ambulance, he started walking towards his home carrying his granddaughter’s body on his shoulder.
But when some media persons intervened, a private ambulance was given and her body was sent home.
According to the police spokesperson, the man had earlier taken the girl to a private hospital but due to lack of money, she did not receive any treatment.
