A nine-month-old girl who was allegedly administered an incorrect dosage of drugs at Darul Sehat Hospital in Karachi died on Monday morning.

Her death was confirmed by officials at the private hospital where she had been shifted following the incident.

Nashwa was allegedly administered an overdose of a drug at the Darul Sehat Hospital on April 7. After her condition worsened, she was shifted to another hospital where doctors said she had sustained brain damage.

An attempted murder case has been registered against the doctors and staff involved. Her father, Qaiser Ali, has registered the case against the hospital at the Sharae Faisal police station under attempted murder and negligence sections.

A Karachi court extended on Saturday the physical remand of a staffer at Darul Sehat Hospital in the attempted murder case. The police told the court that they want to interrogate him and other employees further. The court also summoned the hospital’s CCTV footage at the next hearing.

The police added Section 322 (murder) of the Pakistan Penal Code to the FIR Monday and said all suspects, both directly and indirectly, involved will be arrested.

Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah has said that the Sindh government had planned to send her abroad for treatment. Condoling with the child’s parents, he said he feels their pain. Governor Imran Ismail has said that she died due to medical negligence and has blamed the staff at the hospital for her death.

He called for stricter rules at hospitals.
