A four-member probe body has been formed by Natore Sadar Hospital authorities to look into the matter

Local people demonstrated at Ahmedpur Bus Stand in Barigram upazila on Thursday demanding the arrest of the doctor responsible for the death of Ariful within 24 hours.

They also threatened to besiege the local police station if their demand goes unheeded.

Several hundred people took to the street in the morning and formed a human chain.

On November 2, Ariful, son of Khodabox, a farmer, died on Monday, allegedly due to wrong treatment at a hospital in Natore Sadar upazila.

Family sources said a toy whistle got stuck in Ariful’s throat while playing. He was taken to a local hospital where the doctors referred him to Natore Sadar Hospital.

The on-duty doctor took the boy to the emergency ward and tried to retrieve the whistle by performing a surgery on his throat. But the boy started bleeding excessively and his condition started to worsen. He later died while being moved to Rajshahi Medical College and Hospital.

A case was filed in connection with the death of a ten-year-old boy due to wrong treatment at a hospital in Sadar upazila on Monday.

Khodabox, the father of the child, filed the case with Natore Sadar police station.

Besides, a four-member probe body was formed to look into the matter.

The authorities concerned of Sadar Hospital formed the four-member committee, headed by assistant director of the hospital Dr Ansarul Haque.

The committee has been asked to submit its report within three working days but the committee sought more time on Monday.
