A nine-year-old girl died allegedly due to 'wrong treatment' at a private hospital in the town on Saturday.
The right leg of Atika, daughter of Atiqur Rahman of Goalkari village in Baliadangi upazila, fractured as a battery-operated three-wheeler hit her when she was returning home from school over two weeks ago, Atiqur said.
"After treatment for 13 days at Thakurgaon Sadar Hospital, she was shifted to Eliza Nursing Home and Diagnostic Centre where a junior orthopaedic consultant at Panchagarh Sadar Hospital conducted a surgery on her right leg on Saturday night, after anaesthesia by an anaesthesia consultant.
"Excessive dose of anaesthesia caused death of my daughter the same night. The two doctors left the private hospital without informing us of the death," Atiqul alleged.
Thakurgaon Civil Surgeon said a 3-member probe body has been formed to investigate the incident.
