18 year-old Dimple Das was admitted to Garamur’s civil hospital from Lakhimpur district on Monday. Reportedly, the family made use of the bicycle at the time of bringing the boy to the hospital as well since they had to cross the same makeshift bamboo bridge. But Das died while a doctor was diagnosing him.
While talking to Indian Express, P.G.Jha, deputy commissioner of Majhauli district said
They had brought the patient on a bicycle. Following his death due to respiratory problems, they left with his body tied to a bicycle. This happened despite the hospital having a hearse van.
