The daughter of Padma Vibhushan Pandit Chhannulal Mishra, who was the proposer for PM Narendra Modi in the 2014 Lok Sabha election, passed away suffering from Covid-19. His younger daughter has now accused the hospital of negligence and lodged a complaint against the facility.
Celebrated Hindustani classical singer Pandit Channulal Mishra’s wife had passed away due to Covid-19 recently. And now his daughter Sangeeta also died suffering from Covid.
Following the death of her sister, Pandit Mishra’s younger daughter Namrata turned up at the private hospital and accused the management of negligence and extortion. She created a ruckus at the hospital premises over the death of her sister.
On April 26, 76-year-old Manorama Mishra, wife of Pandit Chhannulal Mishra, died suffering from Covid at a private hospital in Gurdham area of Varanasi. Then on May 1, Pandit Chhannulal’s elder daughter Sangeeta also passed away at a Covid hospital in Maidagin area.
Two days after Sangeeta’s death, the hospital allegedly failed to provide any details over the death, patient records or CCTV footage. This prompted the younger daughter to reach the hospital premises demanding answers.

Namrata has accused the hospital of negligence and extortion. She was seen shouting and accusing the hospital authorities of negligence. The heated arguments went on for about an hour at the hospital.
Soon, police reached the private hospital in Varanasi and persuaded Namrata and the family to lodge a police complaint instead. She then went on to file a complaint against Medwin Hospital.
Namrata has said her sister Sangeeta was admitted to Medwin Hospital after they paid Rs 1.5 lakh. She was vomiting and also had a fever. Her reports later showed she was Covid positive.
The hospital had allegedly promised to show CCTV footage of Sangeeta while she was at the facility. The hospital had also said that her condition was improving and was being given regular food.
Later on April 29, the family was told that Sangeeta’s condition was critical. When the family reached the hospital, they were informed of her death.
After several appeals, the family got to see her body and said that they were also not informed of her condition and what led to the deterioration.
The family has now sought a probe into the death and asked for CCTV footage of the hospital while the sister has alleged Sangeeta was murdered.
