The girl, who was admitted to the District Hospital on December 13, was sent to the Hamidia Hospital in the state capital yesterday for treatment but she died on the way.
Ambulance driver took the girl to the Hamidia Hospital but fled thereafter.
The girl’s body was handed over to her parents after a post-mortem. Her parents alleged that the girl could have been saved if she was not sent to Bhopal.
Reportedly, the hospital administration had decided to send the girl to Bhopal as they were annoyed with the constant agitation outside the premises following the incident of gangrape.
The girl’s parents told media in the state capital that they had requested the ambulance staff to her back to Sagar but no one paid heed. The girl’s health had also deteriorated because her parents had to spend long hours in the police station after the rape incident.
Three people were arrested on the charge of raping the woman.
The hospital administration is silent over the matter.
