We had to get it from GMCH. And at that critical time when I asked the hospital staff to call for the doctors in charge, no doctors were available at that time,” Mrili Barbara, Avneet’s mother said in the FIR lodged at Dispur police station.
She further said that at the time of admission in the hospital, they were told that the patient will be under the guidance of Dr Prakitish Bora, but when at the time of distress the victim family tried contacting Dr Bora, he didn’t attended the calls.
