The relatives of 69-year-old Poovakka, who died on Tuesday, and Class IV student Haseena who died on March 19, had alleged on Wednesday that they had attended a health camp on March 10 and died due negligence of doctors. The camp was organised under the banner of Vajpayee Arogyashree health scheme.
The hospital had sent 'motivators' to the village a couple of days prior to the camp. As part of the camp, experts were to meet the poor farmers, poultry owners, agricultural labourers, beedi rollers and few minority families with no set income living in this small town. The 'motivators' had allegedly spread the word that the area was prone to several insidious diseases and everybody should attend the health camp.
Meanwhile, the district administration suspended all medical camps till the report on the Panaje health camp and ordered an inquiry into the incident.
