SHILLONG, March 26: In what could be termed a a case of alleged medical negligence, a two-month-old baby died 9 hours after the DBT vaccine taken at Sohra Community Health Centre (CHC), East Khasi Hills district.
The parents Baiamonlang Laloo and Wanlambor Kharumnuid, residents of Saitsohpen village under Sohra Sub-division lodged an F.I.R with Saitsohpen Police station, claiming that the death of their offspring is baffling.
The father of the child Wanlambor Kharumnoid claimed that his two months baby was born as healthy baby adding even before taking her for injection before unwanted health issues started to crop up.
The aggrieved father further informed that the matter was also intimidated to the hospital authority which the doctor only declared that it was a case of “heart-failed” but failed to give us the actual fact.
Informing that an FIR was also lodged with the Sohra police, Kharumnuid said, “We want to know the real cause that led to the death of our baby.”
