Madhya Pradesh: 25-year-old lady dies during sterilisation camp

Tikamgarh: A 25-year-old woman allegedly died due to excessive bleeding at a sterilisation camp organised by the health department of Madhya Pradesh government in Lidhora area some 35 km from here.

The deceased has been identified as Seema Sen. Her father Asaram has lodged a complaint with police on Saturday, alleging that a doctor on duty was responsible for the death of his daughter last evening, Lidhora police station, inspector L P Yadav said.

In his complaint, Asaram has alleged that Seema died as a wrong vein was cut following which she bled profusely and succumbed later.

“We have registered a complaint and are investigating it. After getting post-mortem report and other material we will proceed in the case in accordance with the law,” Yadav added.

Two years ago, a woman identified as Savita Ahirwar (26) allegedly died during a sterilisation drive after she was given a wrong injection at Palera area in October 2014.

Meanwhile, senior Congress leader and former MP Minister Yadvendra Singh alleged that it was surprising that the health services in Tikamgarh were in disarray especially when MP Health Minister Rustam Singh is the district guardian minister.

“From this it can be gauged what will be the condition of people in other districts,” he added.
