Minor girl dies from ‘wrong treatment’ in Netrakona
An 11-month-old girl died allegedly from ‘wrong treatment’ at Purbadhala upazila in Netrakona on Tuesday evening.
Deceased Jonaki was the daughter of Jahangir Alam, a resident of Bhitargaon village in the upazila.
Jahangir took Jonaki to Md Golam Mostafa, deputy assistant medical officer of Purbadhala Upazila Health Complex, in the evening for her tumor treatment on the head.
Golam Mostafa took the patient to his chamber at Ma Diagnostic Centre in front of the Upazila Health Complex where he gave her an injection before operation.
As Jonaki started to have seizure, he was taken to the Upazila Health Complex where she died.
The on-duty physician Wahidur Rahman Khan said she was taken to the hospital around 5 pm with seizure. She died after they had given her oxygen.
The hospital authority said a three-member committee was formed in this regard.
Purbadhala Police Station OC Mohammad Tawhidur Rahman said no case has been filed in this connection.
Accused Golam Mostafa was held and sent to jail under section 54, the OC added.
