The death of a three-year-old male child led to commotion at the Government Headquarters Hospital in Krishnagiri on Wednesday.

This is the second such incident at the GH in the last week.

T. Gokulraj (3), the only son of Thimmarayan and Madhammal of Vettiyampatti village, died at the GH, allegedly half an hour after he was admitted with fever.

He was brought to the GH around noon on Wednesday with high temperature and allegedly died due to late arrival of doctors to the emergency ward. Relatives told reporters that the child had been taking treatment for fever in private hospitals for the last three days and was brought to the GH on Sunday and was treated as an out patient. If the doctors arrived in time, the boy could have been saved, alleged relatives.

This is a very serious allegation by a destitute parents against the so called noble preofession. Govt. has to initiate a honest and fair investigation, not only to know the truth behind the allegation, but also to prevent these thing happening in the future in our Govt.Hospitals. For the poor and destitutes they have no ohter choice than to approach govt. Hospitals. In the above case since the child was referred froma private hospital it may be that the child would have died because of the underlying illness. Any how we need to know the truth behind it.
