NEW DELHI: In a shocking case in the national capital, the body of a new-born girl who died of infection at a hospital was thrown in the garbage bin meant for biological waste.
The shameful incident was reported from the Chanan Devi Hospital in Janakpuri where the new-born baby girl was admitted. When she died of the unknown infection, her body was not kept in the mortuary, instead it was dumped in the garbage dump on Monday night.
The family was not told what infection the baby girl suffered from.
But the greatest shock to them came when the family was told that her body has already been dumped. Police have registered a case against the hospital.
Doctors have put the blame on the hospital supervisor.
Delhi’s Aam Aadmi Party chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said, “We got the report of a new born baby being dumped in the garbage dump. We are investigating it.’’
