C’garh sterilisation: CSE says post-op infection caused women’s deaths

Challenging Chhattisgarh government’s claim that death of 13 women in a sterilisation camp was due to contaminated antibiotics, a research and advocacy group has claimed that “post-operation infection” was the reason behind the deaths.

A detailed investigation done by Down to Earth (DTE) magazine of Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) found that there was a “botch-up” during the “assembly line sterilisation procedure” which was done in “poor and unhygienic” conditions.

“Our research has revealed that the claim of state health officials that the deaths occurred due to contaminated antibiotics is not correct.

“Our colleague who travelled extensively in the district and met with both government officials and participants in the sterilisation camp has found that deaths were because of post-operation infection,” director general of CSE Sunita Narain told PTI on Friday.
