An elderly couple is asking for money to “have their son’s body released from a government hospital” on the streets of Samastipur, Bihar.
However, a hospital employee allegedly demanded Rs 50,000 from the couple in order to release their son’s remains. The couple is walking around the city “begging for money” because they don’t have any.
Video of the couple goes viral on social media
Moreover, on social media, a video of the couple has gone viral.
Furthermore, according to the father, his son had gone missing a few days before.
“My son had gone missing a while back. We’ve just received word that my son’s body has arrived at Sadar Hospital in Samastipur. To release my son’s body, a hospital official has demanded Rs 50,000. We’re poor people; how will we be able to pay this sum?” according to Mahesh Thakur.
Moreover, the majority of the hospital’s health employees are on contract, and they frequently do not receive their paychecks on time. There have been a number of incidents where staff members have collected money from patients’ relatives.
The hospital administration has stated that strict measures will be taken in this case. “Those who are found guilty will not be spared. This is an embarrassment to humanity “Samastipur civil surgeon Dr. SK Chaudhary stated.
