Relatives vandalised a private clinic allegedly after the death of a new-mother in wrong treatment at Sipahipara in Sadar upazila on Tuesday afternoon.
Hatimara Police Camp in-charge Bikash Chandra Sarkar said Nadia Kabir, 22, wife of Kabir Hossain, a resident of Rampal Suapara village, had been admitted to Bikrampur Clinic and Diagnostic Centre on Tuesday afternoon for going into labour.
Later, Nadia gave birth to a baby around 1pm through a caesarean section conducted by gynaecologist Naz Chowdhury.
However, as the condition of Nadia showed a deteriorating trend, she was shifted to Munshiganj General Hopsital where on-duty doctors declared her dead around 4pm.
Outraged by the death, the victim’s relatives vandalised the private clinic, leaving five of its patients injured.
On information, police rushed in and brought the situation under control.
Additional policemen were deployed in and around the clinic to ward off any further chaos.
