The probe into the death of 26-year-old IT engineer Denny Sunny during a dental surgery at a hospital at Aluva is yet to make a headway. The family alleged that although a week has passed they have not got the post-mortem report. They said that they were in the dark about the real cause of his death.
“The post-mortem was conducted on January 13. But we do not know the cause of his death. From the reports that appeared in the paper, we learnt that the cotton balls that went into his lungs could have caused it. We have not got any further information,” said Seby, Denny’s cousin.
She said the family is confused as the doctors told them a different story.
“They said that the death occurred when the patient developed complications after injecting the adrenalin,“ she said. “Though we contacted the police, they too washed their hands off saying that they did not get the post-mortem report. When the news of his death came out, the Chief Minister had called Denny’s father and assured him of every help. But we are yet to get the post-mortem report,” she said.
His family said they were literally groping in the dark as they could not take any steps without a post-mortem report.
District Collector P I Sheik Pareeth said that the preliminary inquiry has been carried out. “We have recorded the statement of the family members and every one related to the case. This particular case deserves a detailed inquiry. The report will soon be submitted to the government,” he said.
According to the police, Denny Sunny from Pushpamangalam, Karippayi Road, Rajagiri, South Kalamassery, who was working in Bangalore was referred to a private hospital at Aluva for a minor dental surgery. But following the administration of anaesthesia, he reportedly developed complications leading to his death.
