A 26-year-old woman died at the Sindh Government Hospital, Korangi and her parents are blaming doctors at the hospital.

He said staff at the hospital gave her a check up and then administered an injection. When her condition worsened they told them to take her Jinnah hospital. Her family says she died 15 minutes after the injection was given.

We want a complete investigation and the people responsible to be arrested, he said.

The Awami Colony SHO said that they have arrested the attendant on duty. They have seized the syringe used in the incident and a sample of the drug given. He said that the cause of death will be determined once the results of the post-mortem examination come back.
