Father demands justice after daughter's death

Kolkata: The hapless father of a six-month-old girl has started fast unto death in Asansol demanding stern action against the persons responsible for her daughter's death.
Akshay Ghosh, father of the child, who is on fast unto death said despite repeated complaints the administration has not taken any action against the nursing home.
Earlier, Ghosh and his wife Rupa had staged a dharna for 26 days outside the nursing home situated at Kumarpur off Sen
Raligh Road.
On March 20, the child had high fever and was taken to the nursing home.
The nursing home authorities had administered an injection and within half an hour the baby showed signs of uneasiness and died.
Following the death, Ghosh requested the nursing home authorities to tell him the name of the injection and the course of treatment they
had followed. But the nursing home refused to disclose the name of the injection and also did not tell anything on the treatment.
Ghosh said following this he had gone from the pillar to post demanding stern action against the culprits. "What has happened to my daughter can happen to others. So, I want action against the culprits whose callousness has led to the death of my
only daughter."
He said on March 19 was the baby's naming ceremony and she was absolutely fine on that day.
She had taken her food and slept well at night. She had fever from the afternoon and as the temperature shot up she was taken to the nursing home.
