NEW DELHI,(APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 11th Augst,2016) - An Indian family alleged Thursday that their 10-month-old baby died after treatment was delayed by staff at a large, government-run hospital demanding bribes. Sumita and Shiv Dutt said they rushed their ill son to the hospital on Sunday night in Uttar Pradesh state, where a nurse demanded payment in return for getting their paperwork submitted.
Sumita Dutt alleged a medic asked for money two days later to administer an injection, but she had run out of funds, leading to an argument and a delay in the child receiving the treatment.
