FARIDABAD: Television journalist Sachin Kheda today died at a private hospital here where he was undergoing treatment after which his relatives alleged that medical negligence was responsbile for his death. Sachin's brother Ashish has complained against one doctor and other doctors of ICU who were treating him, police said.

"According to Ashish's complaint, Sachin was admitted to the hospital on August 29 due to stomach ache. He was discharged on September 1. However, his condition deteriorated and he was again admitted on September 2," a police spokesperson said. "He was being treated by Dr Amit Miglani. At the request of the relatives, Miglani was replaced by another doctor who diagnosed Sachin with chikungunya.

On September 7, Sachin had trouble breathing after which he was admitted to ICU where he died this morning," he added. Sachin's relatives are alleging that the doctors either gave him wrong medicine or overdose of some medicine leading to his death. They are also alleging the doctors of witholding Sachin's actual situation from them and misleading them. "The postmortem has been done. Any further action will be taken on the basis of the postmortem report," ACP Mujesar Rajesh Chechi said.
