IMPHAL, Oct 10: Women Action for Development (WAD) has expressed shock and pain over the death of Ninthoujam Ningol Laishram Ongbi Binashakhi (37) w/o L Yaiskul of Heirok at-II of Hiyanglam Wabagai during child birth.
In a statement, WAD secretary Sobita Mangsatabam observed that it was really unfortunate that there was total negligence on the part of the doctors in Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences (JNIMS) Hospital as per the report of the victim’s family. Binashakhi died because of the failure of the doctors to perform their duty. She checked her health thoroughly, but the doctors could not save her in time, So, what is the reason behind it?, Sobita questioned, adding that WAD is really concerned about the reproductive health issue of Manipur.
The above case is just one of the many such cases where negligence of doctors resulted in death during child birth in various public and private hospitals in Manipur, Sobita pointed out, while appealing to the authorities concerned to look into these cases seriously.
