A poor man has alleged that a kidney of his lone minor daughter was stolen at Natore Baptist-mid Mission Hospital where she underwent operation for removal of a tumor two years ago.
Day-labourer Md Sirajul Islam Sagor of Kodalia village in Atghoria upazila alleged this at a press conference held at Pabna Press Club yesterday. This was detected following an ultra-sonogram of Shyamoli done at Pabna Diagnostic Complex and Hospital on April 20 this year, he said.
Sagor said that he had admitted her daughter to the hospital for removal of a tumor as per decision of the hospital authorities on May 10, 2006. The operation was done by Prof Bizoni Prova, he said. 'But after operation my child fell ill instead of recovery', he said. 'As her condition deteriorated, contacted the authorities of Pabna Diagnosis Complex and Hospital where they performed her ultra-sonogram on April 20, 2008. They found that the right kidney of the child was absent', Sagor informed.
The poor day labourer has urged the authorities concerned to take action against the culprits who stole kidney of her 'innocent' child.
Shyamoli's mother Sefali Khatun and other relatives were also present at the conference.
This correspondent tried to contact the hospital authorities several times yesterday for their comments through land phone and cell phone but in vain.
