A 23-year-old computer operator of a working in a Tiruvanmiyur BPO firm who suffered fever on Wednesday last, died early mysteriously on Saturday at a private hospital. His family members and relatives alleged he died due to the doctor’s medical negligence.

P Muthu of Tiruvanmiyur developed fever on Wednesday and had reportedly gone to a hospital near his home where a woman doctor administered him an injection. The following day the place became swollen and he couldn't move his right leg. The doctor advised him to apply ice over the swollen area when he went to the same doctor on Thursday.

Muthu's uncle Muthuraman said that, "On Friday, he went to a hospital in Besant Nagar where doctors removed puss from the swollen area. Around 2.30 am on Saturday, when Muthu complained of severe pain a doctor from another hospital was called as there was no duty doctor. He was declared dead at 3.15 am”.

"Following this Muthu’s father Muthuraman filed a complaint against the woman doctor and the hospital for medical negligence as both had failed to explain properly the cause of his death. The Tiruvanmiyur police registered a case. Muthuraman said, when Muthu's body was sent to the government hospital in Royapettah doctors refused to perform postmortem saying the doctor concerned was on leave. The body was then sent to the Kilpauk Medical College Hospital where, too, doctors initially refused but later conducted postmortem".

The body was handed over to the family on Sunday and it was taken to Aranthangi near Pudukottai where it will be cremated on Monday.
