The relatives of deceased have accused the hospital authorities of asking them to leave upon their arrival, forcing them to carry the dead body on 2-wheeler to their home. They further accused of not being provided a stretcher or ambulance.

A relative of deceased said, "The moment doctors seen the boy, they asked us to leave. We had to carry the body on our shoulders as they did not provide stretcher nor ambulance. We bought the body on the bike as the hospital authority didn't even provide us anything." 

However, the hospital authorities have denied of accepting any allegations and accused the deceased's family of leaving without completing the formalities. Dr Amrita Sinha confirmed that the boy's family left without informing.

She said, "I was informed that the boy was brought dead to the hospital. The hospital authority was informing the police about the case when the relatives of the deceased took the body away. If they would have informed us, we would have surely provided them the ambulance."
