The child passed away while receiving treatment at the hospital on Sunday.

The hospital administration allegedly denied to provide the family with an ambulance, to carry the body back to their village, claiming that there was no free ambulance service at the time.

The man, Vetti Malla, was forced to bring back the body on his motorcycle because he couldn’t afford to hire a private ambulance, the video of which has been doing rounds on social media.

Ambulance services are a privilege for those in need in rural areas of the Telugu states. Similar situations occurred in parts of Andhra Pradesh where a father was forced to carry his son’s body, who died of kidney failure, on a motorcycle after the private ambulance refused to reduce its rates.

In another instance from AP, when an 8-year-old boy drowned in a pond in an attempt to defecate, auto drivers and cabs refused to take him anywhere, forcing the father to carry his son on his shoulders. They were later given a lift back to their hometown.
