A quack ended up killing his own mother and sister when he injected them the wrong drug in a Bihar village recently.
The incident took place in Sundari village of Araria district on Wednesday when Jamshed Rahman (30) injected his family members with a muscle relaxant instead of a hepatitis-B vaccine.
Rahman, who had been advised by a doctor at the Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (Patna) to get his family vaccinated, mistook Samvec, a muscle relaxant, for Shanvac – B vaccine.
Soon after they were injected, Rahman’s mother Sameeda Khatun, 48, and sister Rajjo Khatun, 14, complained of uneasiness and were rushed to a primary health centre PHC, where the doctors declared them dead on arrival.
An FIR has been filed against Rahman who is absconding. “We are investigating if Rahman made a mistake or had some other motive,” the Araria SP said.
