HYDERABAD: In an alleged case of negligence, a three-year-old thalassaemia patient tested positive for HIV. The parents of the toddler approached the Nallakunta police on Sunday seeking a probe against the Red Cross blood bank located in Adikmet, where the baby has been undergoing blood transfusions for the past 2.5 years.

After that, his parents approached the Nallakunta police station seeking a detailed inquiry into the blood bank’s negligence. The police have written to the Medical Board asking for its opinion and also to the blood bank management asking them to submit the patient’s records.
