Kejriwal urged to take action for Odisha boy’s death

Bhubaneswar:  Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Tuesday urged Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal to take action against the hospitals that allegedly did not admit a boy. Though suspected to be suffering from dengue yet the delay in treatment and access to medication resulted in the child’s tragic death, a release said.

His parents, Laxmichandra and Babita Rout, natives of Odisha, committed suicide by jumping from a four-storey building in Delhi on September 9, a day after their only son Avinash died due to hospital negligence.

In a telephonic call to Kejriwal, Patnaik expressed grave concern over the sad demise of the child allegedly after private hospitals in the national capital declined to admit him and it eventually led to the suicide of his parents, the release added.

 

Patnaik also announced an ex-gratia of Rs 3 lakh from the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund (CMRF) for the bereaved family of the couple and their child, who lived in Jaguleipada village in Kendrapara district.

He also ordered the Kendrapada district collector to include the family’s relations under various social welfare schemes of the government.

Meanwhile, the Delhi government has ordered a probe into the three deaths. The union health ministry also ordered an inquiry into the case.
