Hyderabad, Jan 13: The death of two women after delivery at a government-run hospital in Hyderabad sparked protest by their relatives on Friday.
Alleging that negligence by the doctors led to the deaths, relatives of the deceased sat on a dharna in front of the government area hospital in Malakpet. They lodged a complaint with the police, demanding action against the doctors responsible for negligence.
Both women died while undergoing treatment at the government-run Gandhi Hospital, where they were shifted after their condition became critical.
Mahesh, a driver from a village in Nagarkurnool district had admitted his wife Sri Venella (23) to the hospital on Monday.
She delivered a baby on Wednesday by cesarean section. He said a few hours later she started shivering but nobody took care. The next day he was informed that his condition was not good as his pulse rate has come down and his heartbeat has increased.
When her condition turned critical, the staff shifted her to Gandhi Hospital. He said doctors at Gandhi Hospital told her that she had dengue fever for five days and platelets had dropped. She succumbed while undergoing treatment.
Holding her newborn daughter in his arms, Mahesh was inconsolable. He demanded authorities do justice to him.

Jagadish was distraught over losing his wife within hours after delivering their first child.
I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush. Thankfully, Rakul Preet Singh’s Chhatriwali, directed by Tejas Prabhaa Vijay Deoskar, doesn’t digress much, and follows a crisp screenplay. There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
