PATNA: A family has blamed rats for nibbling a newborn baby to death at a leading government hospital in Bihar.
The baby was admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of the Darbhanga Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) on Monday afternoon.
“Shortly past midnight when we entered the NICU to see the baby, we saw rats nibbling the baby. We called the nurses and hospital staffs who were away. On seeing the baby, the nurse said the baby has died,” victim’s mother Neelam Chaudhary told the media on Tuesday.
Soon after the incident, the victim family met the local deputy development commissioner Dr KP Mahato and apprised him of the situation at the DMCH.
The DDC has ordered an inquiry into the incident.
