A nine-year-old boy died allegedly due to “wrong treatment" at a private hospital in Mirzapur upazila of Tangail district on Saturday morning.

The deceased was identified as Sajid Hossain, son of Jewel Hossain, a resident of Sushinara village in Delduar upazila of the district.

The deceased's mother Suma Begum said Sajid was admitted to Dewan Hospital and Diagnostic Centre on Wednesday after one of his arms was broken.

After being treated there for several days, he went through a surgery on Friday.

A nurse administered him an injection on Saturday morning after he was fed an egg. Five minutes later, another nurse gave him another injection and he instantly died, the mother alleged.

Meanwhile, soon after the death, the hospital authorities, doctors, and nurses went into hiding.

When contacted, the hospital owner Dewan Muttaleb's cell phone was found switched off.

Regarding the matter, Mirzapur police station Inspector Md Gias Uddin said he had heard about the death at the hospital but he did not yet know the reason behind the child’s death.

Legal action will be taken if the deceased's family lodges a written complaint, the inspector added.

A three-member probe committee has been formed to investigate the matter.
