NUWAKOT, July 26: Locals in Belkotgadhi Municipality-7 of Nuwakot have blocked the Galchi-Trishuli road section today to protest the death of one woman who died of excessive bleeding.

Goma Osti from Tareshwor Rural Municipality-5 died of excessive bleeding. Osti gave birth to a baby boy on Thursday at the district hospital.

Her baby boy was referred to Kanti Bal Hospital after his lungs were found to be in abnormal condition. However, she was kept at the district hospital. She was unconscious when her baby boy was rushed to Kanti Bal Hospital. He died of excessive bleeding later on.

Locals have accused the district hospital of being indifferent to the health condition of Osti. They have vented their anger on the hospital administration saying that the doctors involved in her treatment did not take care of her properly.

The locals took to street and burned tyres in protest of the death of Osti that is attributable to the carelessness on the part of doctors according to them, the local Prem Lamichhane informed.

The hospital administration is negotiating with the relatives of the deceased in District Police Office in Nuwakot.

The road will not reopen to traffic until the demands of the victims are met, according to Lamichhane.

Madhukar, a doctor at Nuwakot district hospital said that Osti’s death was caused by lack of instrument in the hospital.

After her condition worsened severely, she was rushed to Teaching Hospital in Kathmandu through a helicopter. But, she was already dead when she was taken to Teaching hospital, according to Teaching Hospital administration.
