Jalandhar, June 4

Jalandhar Deputy Commissioner Varinder Sharma has ordered a probe into the death of 19-year-old pregnant woman, who died late on the night of May 31 after traversing three government and four private medical facilities in Adampur, Jalandhar and Amritsar.

The DC’s orders have come in the wake of a report published by The Tribune in one of its columns.

The woman, who was referred to Amritsar medical college, died three days later after returning to Jalandhar civil hospital. The expecting couple had travelled to seven different hospitals, but in vain.

On Thursday, city-based activist Surinder Saini wrote to the DC, demanding a probe into the matter.

Initially, report of the postmortem conducted at local civil hospital said it was a case of intra-uterine death. The DC said, “A probe has been ordered into the case. Given her medical background, IAS Shena Aggarwal, CEO, Smart City Project, will conduct the probe. We have asked that a report be submitted at the earliest.”— TNS
