Bihar woman, 28, dies after birth control surgery by compounder

Patna: Police in Bihar’s Samastipur are investigating a woman’s death following sterilisation surgery carried out by a junior staff at a private hospital, NDTV reported.

Relatives of the 28-year-old Babita Devi said they had taken her to Anisha healthcare centre, located in Musrigharari, 80 km away from capital Patna, for the surgery.

A compounder went on to conduct the surgery after the staff at the centre told them no doctor was available.

"We brought her here around 9 am. They administered her saline water. Around 11 am, they started the procedure. About an hour later, they put her into an ambulance and rushed her to a hospital in Mohanpur (about 10 km away)," the woman's uncle was quoted as saying.

The family members were not informed of her condition, but when they touched her, the body was cold, he said adding: ‘She died right here. But they did not tell us and rushed to Mohanpur.’

Later, relatives brought the body back to Anisha health care centre and held a protest.

The woman’s elderly relative was seen in visuals wailing in grief.

As the deceased’s relatives are demanding action against hospital, the staff of Anisha health care centre is on the run.

Police reportedly said that it is being probed and action will be taken against those responsible.
