Razia's family unable to foot bills

Bangalore, Dec 3, 2012, DHNS :

Razia Sultana (5), a resident of Nagashettyhalli who was bitten by a dog on Sunday, is now being treated at M S Ramaiah Hospital in the City.

The doctors have directed her to stay in the hospital for two months till she recovers completely.

Razia was injured in her right cheek, neck and leg.

Though Dr Parviz Ahmad Piran, joint director of BBMP’s animal husbandry department, said Razia would have to undergo a facial surgery in the future, her family is unable to bear the mounting hospital expenses. Speaking to Deccan Herald, Hussain Khan, Razia‘s uncle, said they had spent Rs 20,000 so far.


‘No monetary help’

Though many BBMP officials visited the hospital and assured her parents of monetary help, nothing has come about so far, he added.

“She will be kept in the ICU ward for two to three days. Later, she will be shifted to the general ward.

“According to the hospital staff, every day we should pay Rs 200 at the general ward.

A few government officers who visited Razia told us that our medical expenses will be reimbursed only after we furnish the medical bills. I sincerely request government officials to support us financially now, as we cannot afford the costly medicines,” said the victim’s uncle.

On Razia’s health, Dr Piran said that she was responding well to the treatment. The rabid dog that attacked Razia will be kept under observation for 10 days.

“I have informed the Mayor about the financial status of the victim’s family,” he said.
