As per reports, a woman was admitted to the maternity and child health centre of the DHH on Sunday after she complained a labour pain.
However, an on-duty staff of the DHH allegedly demanded and took bribe of Rs 6OO from a relative of the patient to arrange a bed for her.
A video of the entire episode has been recorded in which the relative of the patient is seen paying the bribe to the hospital staff. A copy of the video footage is with Argus News.
“Our aunt was supposed to get free treatment at the DHHH but we had to give bribe of Rs 600 to a medical staff for arranging a bed for her. We were scared to refuse as our aunt was suffering severe labour pain and required an urgent treatment,” said a relative of the patient.
The video stands as an example of the fact that the staff members of the DHH loot the patients to ensure better facilities and services.
