They said since last 13 days no body from their family was allowed to enter the ward where the baby was kept, however, on Tuesday evening they informed that baby has died.

“We took body of the baby home without looking it whether the baby is male or female when even on death certificate and other documents male baby has been clearly written and on Wednesday when we asked a local Molvi to give baby last bath, he informed us that baby is female not male,” they said.

“We buried the baby and went to the hospital again to enquire about the issue. The officials at the hospital misbehaved with us and even snatched out documents,” they alleged.

They said government must look into the matter and enquire it so that justice will be delivered.

Meanwhile, Medical Superintendent JVC Dr Shifa Deva told KNO that a lady namely Rukhsana was admitted in JVC on Nov 03, prime with left Ventricular failure and a senior surgeon conducted her surgery and as per the operation notes, she has given birth to a female baby and she was intubated as baby was having perinatal asphyxia and was admitted in ward 07 where baby was being treated.

“When the attendant went to MRD section to get the ticket, he has told the person there they have male baby which he had written on the ticket,” she said. “Our doctor never comes to congratulate anyone and inform anyone congratulations you have given birth to male or female and attendants must come and identify those persons who have informed them.”

She, however, said that they will look into the issue from all angles definitely and will constitute a committee. “It seems to be a technical error and will definitely try to do whatever is needed,” she said—(KNO)
