Is govt also to blame for killing her?
“Why are you shifting my sister to Singapore?” the brother of Patient X asked doctors at Safdarjung Hospital in New Delhi when the decision was taken on Wednesday. The day before, on Tuesday night, when Patient X suffered two cardiac arrests, senior doctors treating her at Safdarjung Hospital already knew there was little hope for this 23- year- old. “We knew she was sinking and had already suffered multiple- organ failure,” one of the doctors who attended her over 10 days told on the condition of anonymity, since he is not authorised to speak to the media.
Even the family of the victim was not keen on the transfer since they knew she was sinking. “We are satisfied with everything here. Is there another reason for the shift,” the brother had asked the medical superintendent, according to the doctor. “If she had to be moved out, it should have been done much earlier. I feel that the government did not want her to die on Indian soil because of the fear of unrest,” the doctor added. On Wednesday, the tenth day since she had been admitted, there had been no news about the victim.
