Bhairahawa, August 5

Students of Universal Medical Science College vandalised the college after the death of their friend in Bhairahawa today.

Twenty-two-year-old Mahabed Sah, a student of BDS fourth semester studying at the same medical college, was admitted to the hospital after a small blister appeared in his anus last Thursday.

Irate students chanted slogans and protested against the severe negligence of doctors after the death of their colleague. They even vandalised the intensive care unit ward and halted the OPD service completely at the hospital today.

Hospital administration said physical infrastructure worth Rs four lakh was damaged in the vandalism.

Sah, from Janakpur, was studying BDS and he was staying in the hostel of the same medical college. Sah returned to the hostel after surgery on the same day. But, he was readmitted yesterday evening after he could not bear the pain of the wound.

Meanwhile, doctors had kept Sah in the ICU ward from the emergency saying that it was a case of infection. Public Contact Officer Sushil Gurung at the hospital said Sah died in the course of treatment in the ICU today.

Relatives of the deceased and irate students demanded investigation into the incident.

They have refused to receive the body till this evening. The body has been kept in the morgue of the hospital.

The students, relatives of the deceased, hospital administration and police are holding talks, but have not been able to reach any resolution till late evening.
