Relatives of a one and half year- old girl, who died following a bus accident, pelted stones at a private medical college hospital and damaged the glasses of the reception, here on Thursday.

According to police, Narmada, daughter of Thennarasu and Anita, residents of nearby Villupuram district of Tamil Nadu, was hit by a private college bus two days ago. She was rushed to a nearby private medical college hospital in Ariyur, where she was given treatment and the family returned home. Following this, Narmada developed complications and was rushed to Government Hospital in Puducherry, where the doctors advised the duo to further consult a private hospital in Chennai for advanced treatment. In the Chennai hospital the parents were told that the treatment may not yield results as there has been great delay in admitting the patient.

The young girl was then taken back to the GH in Puducherry, where she died on Wednesday night.

The angry relatives rushed to the private medical college hospital and questioned the authorities there on the alleged lapses in giving treatment to the child.

A few persons pelted stones at the reception of the hospital and broke the window glasses.
