4 women dead, 20 critical after sterilisation camp in Minister’s district

Two days after 83 women opted for laparoscopic tubectomies at a family planning camp organised by the Chhattisgarh government in Bilaspur, four women died on Monday while at least 20 more are reported to be in a serious condition.

The office of Bilaspur Chief Medical Officer R K Bhange told The Indian Express that senior surgeon Dr R K Gupta and his assistant conducted all the operations in five hours. Bhange, however, ruled out negligence. “There was no negligence. He is a senior doctor. We will probe,” he said.
