A 22-year-old woman from Chattisgarh, who was carrying a dead foetus, died of infection after doctors showed their apathy and allegedly refused to treat  her as she was unable to bear the expense.

The woman from Podibahar village in Korba district, died on Monday night.

Now, the Korba district Collector P Dayanand has constituted a three-member team to probe the incident. The woman identified as Saraswati Mahant died on Monday night at a private hospital here at Rajgamar road, the collector said.

Saraswati’s husband Gulabdas Mahant reportedly took her to Jamunadevi Memorial Maternity Hospital after she complained of severe pain in her stomach.At the hospital, her husband was asked to pay ₹10,000 and arrange three units of blood before doctors would treat her.

The woman was also told at the hospital during a scan that her eight-month-old foetus had died.

As Saraswati’s husband told the doctors that he needs to arrange the money, the doctors stopped the treatment and even after several requests they told him to take her to another hospital.

Mr Gulabdas took his wife to at least three private hospitals in the area but nowhere doctors agreed to operate upon the lady because her condition was too critical.

The third hospital, Srishti, agreed to admit her but her operation was scheduled for the next day on Tuesday. Saraswati died on Monday night at 11.30.


The Logical Indian has been reporting on a series of such events for the last one month that clearly exposes the failure of healthcare facilities in the country. Be it Uttar Pradesh or Odisha or Chhattisgarh, apathy of doctors and medical staffs is turning out to be gruelling for many. People are losing their lives without getting access to proper medical treatment. The government of each states should intervene and try to work towards the betterment of healthcare facilities in the country.
