Woman dies for ‘wrong treatment’ in Narsingdi

NARSINGDI: A woman died while giving birth to a baby, due to alleged wrong treatment administered by doctors at Marie Stopes Maternity Clinic in Narsingdi on Friday night.

The deceased was identified as Saleha Begum, wife of Hannan Miah of Shalidha area of the city, reports UNB.

Responding to the allegation, police have arrested two people including the manager of the clinic.

Relatives of the deceased said Saleha was admitted to the clinic on Friday for an ultrasonogram.
