A man in Odisha’s Malkangiri district had to walk 6 km carrying his seven-year-old daughter’s body as the ambulance transporting them allegedly left them midway.
The ambulance driver allegedly asked the girl’s parents to get down after they came to know that the girl has died on the way to Malkangiri district hospital.
Seven-year-old Barsha Khemudu had been referred to Malkangiri district hospital from Mithali hospital in the district after her condition had deteriorated.
“The driver asked us to get down from the ambulance as soon as he came to know about the girl’s death on the way,” Dinabandhu Khemudu, the girl’s father, said.
The incident came to light when locals inquired about Mr Khemudu and his wife walking, carrying the body of their daughter. The villagers then contacted the local Block Development Officer or BDO and medical authorities to get another vehicle to carry the body to their village.
