The death of patients owing to apathy and callousness of a section of doctors and nurses in different government-run hospitals seems to have become a regular feature in different parts of state. After a series of such incidents in hospitals at Agartala, yesterday a police sub-inspector died practically without treatment in Tripura Sudari hospital at Tepania in the vicinity of Udaipur subdivisional town in Gomati district.

Sources from Udaipur said that Gouranga Debbarma (58) , a sub-inspector posted in Udaipur police line , had been admitted to Gomati district hospital with chest pain yesterday in the morning. But the hospital authority fitted saline bottle for the patient but all day long no senior or junior doctor came to see him. As the condition of the patient continued to deteriorate the relatives of the patients called for doctors repeatedly but there was no response from any one of them. Sources said that the medicine specialist doctor who needed to see the patient Gouranga Debbarma was preoccupied with private practice in his chamber. The doctors in the hospital had prescribed some medicine and fitted another bottle of saline but Gouranga Debbarma fell dead in no time, alleged his relatives and family members.

The death of Gouranga Debbarma was followed by protest demonstration by his family members and relatives in the hospital but they relented soon and took the body back home. Sources said that Gouranga Debbarma had been posted for three years in Raisyabari police station and returned home on leave three days ago before falling sick with chest pain-a symptom of cardiac ailment. His death without treatment was preceded earlier by the death of a student in the Gomati district hospital this month and public anger against the shoddy service in the hospital is steadily growing and may explode soon in massive protest and violence.
