Alleging that the doctors’ negligence led to the death of a stillborn baby, some persons attacked a private hospital in the district headquarters here on Wednesday evening.

According to Circle Inspector K. Shivashankar, one Raju and his sister Purna, a pregnant woman, came to a private hospital for a checkup. Though the doctors suggested for scanning, they went home stating that it can be held later. However, Purna developed labour pains in the evening and no doctor was available by the time they reached hospital. Purna was admitted at a nearby hospital where doctors said that the baby in the womb had already died two days back.

Knowing this, Raju got irritated and attacked the hospital where his sister was checked in the morning. He was also injured in the attack and admitted in hospital for treatment. Police registered a case and are investigating.
