Dhangadhi: In a distressing turn of events, the lifeless body of five-year-old Samrat Air from Godavari Municipality Ward No. 5 in Kailali has remained in the mortuary of Seti Provincial Hospital for four days. The young boy was initially brought to Dilasaini Clinic in Geta for medical attention but tragically succumbed to the effects of an injection administered by the owner's brother.
Owners of the clinic, Dinesh Dhami and Navin Dhami hailing from Sri Lanka, were promptly apprehended by local authorities following the child's demise. Despite the arrests, the family has yet to formally identify the young boy's body.
DSP Kuldeep Chand of District Police Office Kailali revealed that the grieving family is seeking redress against both the clinic operators and the individual responsible for administering the fatal injection. Discussions between the family and the clinic's management transpired at the District Police Office in Kailali on Wednesday and Thursday, but an amicable resolution has proven elusive thus far.
The tragic sequence of events unfolded when Dinesh, the clinic owner, delegated the task of administering the injection to his brother, Navin. Samrat Air, ailing with fever, was brought to the clinic on Wednesday evening. Regrettably, he lost consciousness after receiving the injection and was swiftly transported to Maya Metro Hospital on a scooter. Despite their efforts, the child tragically passed away before reaching the hospital. A case has been officially registered against both Dinesh and Navin in connection with this heart-wrenching incident.
