A woman, suffering from severe joint pains, allegedly committed suicide in Morena after she was unable to get medicines due to the demonetisation of high denomination banknotes.

The incident took place on Thursday but came to light on Monday.

According to the Mata Basaiya police, Rekha Janwar, 32, was left with no medicines on November 8. The next day, her husband went to different medical stores but the shops refused to accept the `500 notes he was carrying, forcing him to return empty-handed. Unable to get her medicines, Rekha committed allegedly suicide.

Police have registered a case and further investigations are on.

In another incident, PK Gautam, an engineer, was allegedly denied treatment at a private hospital in Gwalior when he attempted to pay for his treatment with Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes.

Gautam has lodged complaint against the hospital at the University police station. Chief medical and health officer SS Jadon said there was a strict instruction to all the hospitals that they can’t deny treatment to anyone due to the demonetised notes.
