An 8-year-old child, admitted to a district hospital in Damoh, Madhya Pradesh died after the blood bank allegedly denied giving blood. "We had submitted Rs 1200, but they did not give us the blood. His mother went to people to ask for blood but was not able to arrange it," said one of the relatives of the child.

However, a civil surgeon at the hospital said that since he was critical from the beginning, the doctor had referred him to another hospital but they did not go there.

"He was critical from the beginning. As per the investigation, he had severe anaemia. The doctor had referred him to another hospital, but they did not go there. I will have to inquire the staff on duty at that time at the blood bank," said Dr Mamta Timori, civil surgeon.
