General strike against RIMS death fails to affect normal life

IMPHAL, September 23: The indefinite bandh imposed by the JAC formed against the death of A Bijeta, wife of A Sanatomba of Lamshang Bazaar, failed to give substantial impact across the state. However, the bandh remained effective along the Uripok-Kangchup road especially Lamshang area which is the locality of the deceased.

The impact of the bandh was also felt at Wangkhei Ayangpalli road and Yonglan Leirak, the locality of the deceased' paternal home.

Although there were no reports of any major bandh related violence disrupting normal traffic, bandh supporters blocked Uripok-Kangchup roads, Wangkhei Ayangpalli area and also burnt tyres.

Speaking to media persons at Wangkhei, on the sideline of the bandh, the deceased' sister, identified as Khaidem Manita, appealed the authority concerned to award befitting punishment to the doctors involved with her sister's case as per the law.

She also urged the civil bodies to extend their help in delivering justice to the case.

It may be recalled that A Bijeta who was expecting her first child, was administered with an injection after being admitted to RIMS hospital. Subsequently, Bijeta passed away at RIMS gynaecology department minutes after the injection.

The death sparked a controversy, with the deceased's family pointing fingers at the hospital authorities.

They claimed that Bijita died due to the negligence of the medical staff on duty.
