The girl was a native of Manipur studying in Delhi's Holy Child school, and was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on Wednesday morning where she was confirmed to be suffering from dengue.

A doctor at AIIMS said, "The young girl was admitted to the hospital today (Wednesday) early in the morning and was confirmed to be suffering from dengue. Treatment was initiated but she could not be saved as her condition was serious and she was brought late. The girl was suffering from high fever for almost a week but was not given proper medication."
