The relatives blamed negligence on the part of doctors involved in the treatment, leading to death. 26-year old Chandrakala Paswan, from Bharatpur-4 Mahottari, was admitted to Janakpur hospital for delivery on Monday. However, doctors said that the deceased was not able to give birth to a child and they agreed to the surgery process. During the surgery, her health was deteriorating due to the excessive flow of blood and they called a senior doctor for the surgery. After three hours of a successful surgery, she was fine.
