Medical negligence alleged in boy's death

 Family members of 19-year-old Arun, who died at Sanjeevini Hospital in Mahalakshmi Layout, staged a protest in front of the hospital on Tuesday morning, alleging that the hospital authorities had delayed informing them about the death.

Relatives also said that even as they made attempts to move the boy to Nimhans as his condition had not improved, the doctors did not allow the same.
